The police are now searching for a man they believe is responsible for the death of a pregnant woman in Portmore St Catherine yesterday afternoon.
The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Sasha-Gaye Coffie, a legal clerk of Cumberland.
She was said to be seven months pregnant.
The police say shortly before 3 p.m. a gunman went to Coffie’s house, walked up to her and shot her three times in the head.
She later succumbed to her injuries.
No motive has been established for the woman’s murder.
Coffie’s murder comes more than a year after broadcaster Jody-Ann Gray was shot and seriously injured in Portmore.
Gray was also seven months pregnant at the time of the incident.
While there is no law in Jamaica to punish a pregnant woman’s killer for taking the life of her unborn child, the Justice Minister has said he is looking at amending legislation so that there can be penalties in that regard.

What a bastardly and cruel act, MY SINCERE CONDOLENCIES TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF THIS YOUNG LADY……………….R.I.P
I wonder what’s the story behind this
So sad..some men are so wicked!
$h!tbags do a breaking and entry, demand goods, occupants slow in compliance so dem fire shots and kill de innocent woman who was carrying a life to this wretched world.
Oh, how they will demonstrate for the innocent robbers/murderers if police kill the rest who haven’t turned them self in or JCF do a raid and eradicate the Cumberland/Portmore Don in his den.
Condolences to the family first and foremost and to those affected within our community.
MET, Update on one dirt bag turning himself in to JCF.
See how quick the coward turns himself in so as to avoid being taken out permanently by the police? Piss me off, since I wanted this lowlife to put down on the spot. He was arrested before and set free after shooting this same girl some time ago. She failed to turn up for the ID parade and now she is dead. I guess she was intimated before.
WOW! I guess this should serve to those intimidated to go to court…It’s best to follow through.
So Anon she avoided court and still yet she became a homicide victim? To de same perpetrator? Me did a read observer and didn’t get that…I’m away so the neighborhood version me nah go get till Dec.
