A search has been launched for a man who allegedly killed his sister in St. Andrew, following an argument that developed over food.
The deceased, who was a resident of New Barnett Road, Maverley, Kingston 20, was identified as Kenisha Royal. However, her brother’s name has not yet been shared with the public.
Reports state that on Wednesday evening, Royal, the suspect, and his sisters were at a house on Denver Crescent in Maverley when an argument erupted between the three at approximately 7 p.m.
The source of the contention between the siblings was reportedly over food items, and the argument eventually turned into a physical altercation.
The suspect allegedly stabbed Royal and his other sister multiple times during the altercation.
Royal succumbed to her wounds after she was taken to the hospital, but her sister was released after receiving medical care.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing as the St. Andrew South police continue their search for the suspect.
