The man who’s alleged to have killed his pregnant girlfriend in Rhoden Hall, Clarendon yesterday, has reportedly committed suicide.

Police sources say the man reportedly used an article of clothing to hang himself on Monday morning while he was in detention.

The man was reportedly found unresponsive and taken to the hospital.

An investigation has been launched into the events leading up to the man’s death.

The man was in custody for reportedly killing Tashika McKay.

McKay’s 4-year-old child reportedly found her body.

It’s alleged the man slashed the young woman’s throat during a dispute at her home.
