The father of the child who was found dead at her Frontier Heights home in Port Maria, here, last month, was charged a short while ago for her murder and is to appear in the Port Maria Resident Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
A post-mortem revealed that Crystal Coleman died from brain haemorrhage as a result of beatings she received.
The post-mortem also revealed injuries all over the child’s body.
Dwight Coleman, the child’s father, turned himself in to the police days after his daughter’s body was discovered by a relative. Since Crystal’s death, there have been conflicting reports of her age. It was recently confirmed that she was three years old.
In the meantime, there are inconclusive results for the cause of death of 14-year-old Annotto Bay High School student Tishauna Henry, who was found last Monday, a day after she was reported missing. Her body was found in a river in Enfield, Annotto Bay. The post-mortem result has however ruled out drowning and rape.
