The 20-year-old man who was arrested and charged with the murder of a woman found buried in a pit at his home reportedly boasted while in custody that he “sacrificed” the young woman.
The accused, Kino Gilzene, a labourer of New Haven in St Andrew, is accused of killing the woman by stabbing her and bashing her face in with a stone.
Allegations are that he was assisted by his sister, 18-year-old Alecia Gilzene of the same address, in burying the woman, Sudeen Jackson, a 22-year-old resident of Braeton, Portmore, St Catherine.
On Friday when the matter was mentioned in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court, the prosecutor said that Kino had been boasting to other inmates that he sacrificed the woman.
However, the court was told that the post-mortem report was not ready and both accused were remanded and are to return to court on March 3.
Kino is charged with murder while his sister is charged with murder and misprision of felony.
Jackson was found on December 10 after she had been reported missing.
According to the police report, on December 8 Kino contacted the woman by phone after he got her number from a friend, and made arrangements for her to meet him at his home the next day. The woman was reportedly scheduled to visit and have sex with Kino for a fee of $3,000.
Jackson, who had never seen Kino before, reportedly met up with him in Duhaney Park, went to his house, followed through with the arrangement and was paid.
However, the court heard that the woman later requested to leave but Kino got angry and stabbed her in her chest and neck before using a stone to bash in her face.
Following that, the accused reportedly hid the woman’s body underneath his bed and proceeded to clean up the crime scene.
Alicia later arrived home and reportedly found the body under the bed, and after making enquires, was told by her brother that he had killed Jackson.
Reports are that upon learning of the murder, Alecia sent a text message to her boyfriend and told him that her brother had killed a woman.
The following morning both accused then reportedly took the woman’s body and buried it in a pit latrine at their home.
They then reportedly concocted a story and told their mother, who called the police.
Kino, when he was arrested, confessed that he was at home when three men, one of whom was armed with a gun, barged in with Sudeen.
According to them the men were cursing that Sudeen had “diss de programme'” and told her that they were going to kill her.
Kino said that the men raped Sudeen and then stabbed her to death and ordered him to bury her.
Alecia in her statement corroborated her brother’s confession.

A man who kicked his sister until she was unconscious, claimed that he was unhappy that she sided with some women whom he said were in a discussion about menstruation.
Seaview Gardens, St Andrew resident, Anthony Perkins, told the court that on the day of the incident he woke up in the morning and left home to purchase Lasco milk at the shop.

Perkins said he pushed away the woman from the gate and told her to leave as she was standing at his gate, and continued on his way to shop.
On his return he said he saw his sister standing where the women were standing and he asked her why she was having such a discussion and she told him that she was not involved.
“Me ask har if it right fi dem have dem kind a argument deh and she say a fi dem mouth, so me shub har and she shub me,” he added.
Perkins said that sister took up a television set to hit him and he pushed her and the television fell and hit her.

“His feet,” she answered. “Him kick me and I fell and him start kick me and when him stop I don’t know what was happening to me.
“When me wake up, me say where me deh and dem tell me say a hospital me deh,” she continued. “Me never expect dat and me nuh want him near me.”
The woman told the court that both she and her brother, who is younger than her, were living in their deceased mother’s house but that she does not want him to return home as she is afraid of him.
“When me think ’bout it me just get scared, me nuh want him near me,” she insisted.
Perkins was then ordered to pay $25,000 or serve six months in prison.
“It’s because you plead guilty why I don’t send you away,” the magistrate told Perkins after he was fined.
