On Friday, Police charged Bruceville, Vieux Fort resident Thomas James alias “Dimitri” with murder in the fatal shooting of Jeffrey Junior Mc Farlene.

The thirty-two-year-old accused is in police custody, awaiting a bail hearing.

Jeffery Junior Mc Farlane, 23, was fatally shot on Clarke Street, Vieux Fort, on Saturday, February 10.

He was a resident of West Hall Group, Vieux Fort.

Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) emergency personnel who responded at about 2:11 am after learning of the shooting, found Mc Farlene on the sidewalk.

His death marked Saint Lucia’s 13th homicide for 2024.

Since then, the homicide toll has increased to 32, largely due to gun violence.

  1. Please permit me to ask a question for a friend – when you state a bail hearing – does that mean that the accused murderer if possible will be granted bail.

    I know that someone is innocent until proven guilty – however, in your 238 square mile radius where everyone know everyone either personally or by extension. On a scale of 1-10 accused is most likely ??????–if you know what I mean. Godspeed St. Lucia.

  2. As per the headline it states Bruceville man charged with murder in fatal shooting. Sooooo how is the accused going to be given a hearing for bail. Explain this please.

  3. What about the other Suspects involved in Killings in Vieux.Fort Castries.Babonneau.Dennery..Dennery Valley etc
    Jamaica First Country on You Tube gave all the information it’s time for the Rslpf to effect arrest

  4. How is his face not plastered everywhere? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

  5. Dimitri is innocent police not doing they job correctly they don’t know how to solve their crime. An they just arresting anybody for the crime that commited

  6. I find that very strange for all these arrested and charges not one case or cases have gone before a judge for sentencing so what is the DPP and the courts doing ??????

  7. I told them the stray dogs that were on Vigie Beach should be transported to VF to take a BITE out of CRIME!!!…But no one listened.
