ST ANN, Jamaica —The Ocho Rios police say they have made a breakthrough in the murder of 63-year-old Nathlee Hamilton, who was stabbed and killed in her home in Beecher Town, St Ann on November 11.
Charged with murder, burglary and abduction is 25-year-old Dianna Pinnock of Epworth, also in the parish.
“After a series of extensive interviews and we have questioned a number of suspects, last night on the 18th of November 2013, we have formally laid charges on Dianna Pinnock,” Assistant Superintendent of Police Throyville Haughton, head of the Ocho Rios police revealed.
He said investigations are still ongoing and people are still being questioned in relation to the matter.
“We are pretty sure that other persons will be charged in the matter,” ASP Haughton said.
“We will have closure to the matter sooner than later,” he added.
Police say the woman arrested in the murder and kidnapping was charged earlier this year in relation to the kindapping of a one-week-old baby in St Mary.

The baby was reportedly found alive at about 11:30 pm on Wednesday night, November 13 in a bag near a bar in the Bonham Spring community, near Exchange, Ocho Rios. He was taken to the hospital.
