  1. ok this is confusing so what happened to Marvin Gabriel, and Junior Herman were they still involved in the killing of the three individuals now that shem is charged for the triple murder or was it only shem now

  2. Hang them all… no more privy council. But Marvin , nor god or the devil want him. Send him to clear land mines in afanganistan.

  3. Exactly Ma Malay.. the article is confusing.. I had to read it three times and still have not understood what happened to the first three suspects…

  4. Smhhhh. Dem police just harassing the yll work properly first yll go on wat one man in jail said den yll arrest three fellars and now yll arrest a fellar. Today dat do not have any connection with these murders smhhh .the same man dat mention the fellars name has a mental problem but yll do not care yll just want to put blame on innocent people..tell me how yll quick to post online and accuse innocent people just yll arrest people on what other people say…,.smhhhh the system here is not far…Shem did not kill no one set the boy free and dig deeper .yll always says yll get the criminals and quick to post them..,free up Shem let dem man fight his case yll jst send de man up base on they say smhhh wat kind of justice is dat….

  5. @ REAL,, you have a good point there you know. St. Lucia should export all those who are at the BCF to those war zone frontliner I am sure the country can get some money in return rather than having to feed these vagabonds who is a menace to society

  6. Ma maylay and M all the article is saying is that there were several suspects involved in the commission of that crime, two of which had been previously charged. From the article, it is apparent that the police now has sufficient evidence to prefer charges against another suspect, Shem Bennett.
