Police said on Wednesday that a post mortem concluded that he died of blood loss and multiple gunshot injuries.

Jarvis, a former senior reporter at Searchlight newspaper, is already facing three charges.

He is charged that on Feb. 14, 2017, at Arnos Vale, “with intent to commit the offence of murder on Josette Smith of Arnos Vale, [he] did an act which is more than merely preparatory to the commission of the offence contrary to Section 315(1) of the Criminal Code”.

He is further charged that on the said date and place, he “entered the dwelling house of Josette Smith of Arnos Vale as a trespasser and at the time had a weapon of offence, to wit, a gun, contrary to Section 218 of the Criminal Code”.

Jarvis is also charged that he “did use one black 9mm Beretta pistol … to aid in the commission of an offence, contrary to Section 91 of the Firearms Act”.

He was remanded in custody pending a bail review.

However, with the murder charge against him, bail will no longer be open to Jarvis.

  1. A BROTHERLY CHARGE:
    Unfortunate moment for my brother.
    Emotions, emotions, emotions!!!
    When a sister wants to walk, let her walk.
    Men breathe and you will live
    A gun or a knife or cutlass
    Create more pain and agony!
    We brought no one into this world so
    We should carry no one out!
    You can’t force love,
    it would be like witchcraft.
    Time does heal tears, and pain
    As long as you are alive
    Restoration will come,
    So brethren, leave it at God’s feet
    It’s just a “shadow of death”
    But, “fear no evil”
    God will restore your soul!
