Three persons of interest are now in police custody in connection with the murder of a couple at Barracks, Manchioneal in Portland yesterday.

Linval ‘Natty Cowhead’ Lindsay, 55, and his wife Annette ‘Plummy’ Carby-Lindsay, 60, were shot and killed at their home in the quiet district of Barracks, overlooking the fishing bay of Manchioneal.

One of those picked up is a man who’s believed to have threatened Linval Lindsay recently.

The death of the couple, brings to five the number of people murdered in Portland this year.

The Police are yet to give a motive for the killing of the Lindsays.

Meanwhile Justice Vinette Graham Allen was today forced to delay her decision on bail for Portland businessman Everton ‘Beachy Stout’ McDonald, who is charged for plotting the deaths of his two wives.

The decision was expected today but was delayed after defence attorneys requested time to go through the contents of a document that provides details on the new evidence that was recently obtained by the prosecution and to seek further instruction from their client.

The 67-year-old accused, who appeared in court via Zoom, was remanded until June 1.

In the meantime, his co-accused, Oscar Barnes, who was previously offered $500,000 bail, was remanded for the police to verify his alternative address.

Barnes was ordered to reside in Windsor Castle in Portland as a condition of his bail.
