House where double murder occurred demolished

The house at Tamarind Heights, La Clery, where a double murder occurred on February 1, 2017, has been demolished.

Neighbours said the home was demolished shortly after Jeffrey Arbella,26, and Sandrina Joseph, 29, were found dead in their beds by the deceased woman’s two young children.

According to residents, the house where the couple lived was broken down because no one would live in it as a result of the tragic death of its last occupants, who are reported to have been hacked to death while they slept.

Don Pierre-Louis, 28,  of Chase Gardens has been charged by the police with causing the death of the couple.

Despite the demolition of the house in which the couple lived, residents told the Times that they still are striving to come to grips with the tragedy that sent shock waves through their quiet community.

They described Jeffrey Arbella  and Sandrina Joseph as two pleasant individuals who will be sorely missed.

According to neighbours, the two children who discovered the double murder are still traumatised and arrangements are being made to take them overseas to live.

They told the Times that other children in the community have also been affected, some of them expressing fear of sleeping in the dark.
