Female teen charged in connection to robbery-homicide incident

Another person has been charged in connection to the April 18 robbery that resulted in the death of 67-year-old Catherine Pickering.
Charged for aiding offenders is 18-year-old Teffiny Smith of Zion Hill.

She is the second female implicated in the incident and the fifth accused person overall.

The others are 22-year-old Akeem Hopkinson and 28-year-old Shameek Grant; one of whom is in a relationship with Smith.

The accused men are charged for murder, robbery, and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

The other person implicated in the incident is Shemar Richardson who is accused of feeding inside information to the perpetrators who executed the crime.

Twenty-year-old Tyann Smith of Freshwater Pond is the other woman charged for or aiding offenders.

According to allegations from the Director of Public Prosecutions Tiffany Scatliffe-Esprit, footage from a digital video recorder inside Hopkinson’s apartment shows two females removing a bag containing what police believe to be the murder weapon — an AK47 assault rifle.

The women later returned to the apartment without a weapon and it has not been recovered to date.

Both females were granted bail until their appearances before the Magistrate’s Court on May 6.
