The man suspected of murdering two women as they slept at a house on Knowles Road, Mandeville, Manchester on Wednesday morning is now in custody.

The suspect, who investigators say gained entry to the premises occupied by the deceased by removing louvres from a section of the house, was apprehended after cops set up a roadblock along Williamsfield main road in the parish, where he was nabbed.

The man, whose identity is being withheld at this time, is to be interviewed in the presence of his attorneys.

According to reports, twenty-nine-year-old Shanika Dixon, a hairdresser, and 35-year-old Ilara Mullings, a bartender of Lincoln Road, Mandeville, Manchester were found with gunshot wounds. It is believed that the incident stems from a domestic dispute.
