A woman has been charged in the deepening murder investigation which has implicated three reputed members of the Coke family who operate out of Tivoli Gardens in West Kingston.

The woman, Iesha Jones, has been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Jones was remanded today when she appeared in the Corporate Area Criminal Court.

Similar charges are expected to be laid this afternoon on Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke and Michael Christopher ‘Titty Man’ Coke.

The charges relate to the killing of Denham town based gunman, Patrick Davis, otherwise known as P-Boy.

Davis was killed in March this year and his body dumped in East Kingston.

Nationwide News understands a man has given a statement to the Police alleging he heard Livity utter expletives then accuse Davis of organizing a gun attack on him, Livity.

According to the alleged eyewitness, he then saw Livity shoot Davis in the chest.

Jones is accused of leading Livity and his cronies to the location where it’s being alleged they murdered Davis.

Titty man is accused of attempting to clean up the crime scene where Davis was murdered.

While another man, Lanchester Coke, is accused of helping Livity place Davis’s body into the trunk of a motor vehicle.

Steps are being taken to have Lanchester Coke deported to Jamaica from the United States.

An M-16 rifle was reportedly found at the house where Lisa Jones and another man were taken into Police custody in connection with the crime.

It’s believed that Davis had organized gunmen in April last year to attack Livity in Hellshire in Portmore St. Catherine. Livity was shot and injured.
