KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Police here are investigating the death of prominent dental technician Ewarth “Ells” King, who was killed at his Pembroke home last night.

The circumstances surrounding King’s death are still sketchy but I-Witness News understands that he was killed by an intruder into his home.

Reports say that King, who is the holder of a licenced firearm, might have injured his attacker.
