Handyman charged with murder

JAMAICAN police have charged a 30-year-old handyman with the murder of a Wakefield man's mother.

Omar Reid was arrested last Thursday in connection with the death of 61-year-old Barbara Scott-Jones.

Her battered body was found dumped in a pit on the holiday island near to her villa in St James, on Good Friday.

Her son Brandon Jones, 37, of Lynwood Drive, Wakefield flew out to the Caribbean Island last month to try and find out what had happened to his mother. He has since returned to the UK.

Ms Scott-Jones had been missing since March 14.

Mr Reid will appear in court in Jamaica later this week.
