Police in St. Vincent and the Grenadines have charged a Park Hill man with murder in connection with the death of two fellow villagers whose charred bodies were found in their community on Monday.

Investigators laid two murder charges against Aldon Thomas, 26, today (Wednesday).

Police have brought the charges just two days after the bodies of Marvin Barker and Calvert “Vert” Smart were found at the back of a house in which Barker lived near the Park Hill Playing Field.

The charges were brought after an intensive investigation including officers from the eastern division and the Major Crime Unit.

Sources said that police could bring more charges against other people in connection with the killing, which brought the homicide count this year to 12.

Thomas, who has made national headlines on several occasions, including in December 2019, when he alleged that police shot him maliciously, is expected to appear in court on Thursday.

  1. It is bias reporting when you try to suggest guilt by associating the accused picture with the criminal justice system. You did not have to describe the photo that way.

  2. Vynnette Frederick says:

    NO INTENSIVE INVESTIGATION. zero evidence against this man but he is charged and placed on remand while the police investigate. He is charged because people in his community died . FOOLISHNESS

  3. Alwayn leacock says:

    How does two grown men allow one man to be able to subdue them and burn them? This is not a one man job more people are involved. The barbarism here is unspeakable

  4. Take warning says:

    wen people can confess that dem don’t believe in God but will call His name fo get way dem want, isn’t the devil in control ?

  5. Vynette are you implying that the police had no iota of evidence against your client or is it a preemptive move on your behalf? If there is no evidence linking the accused to the crime that would have been something else. Let the investigation runs its course and if exonerated. Then there is recourse , via malicious prosecution.
