Andre' Williams, STAR Writer

An argument about a phone charger may have been the reason behind a dispute that led to a British national being chased and killed by angry residents in the rural community of Hermitage, Westmoreland, on Monday, THE STAR understands.

The deceased has been identified as 50-year-old Indiana King.

Reports reaching THE STAR are that angry residents chased and chopped King to death after it was alleged he stabbed his girlfriend's 25-year-old son, after the two allegedly had a dispute about a charger.

THE STAR gathered that King, who was a visitor to the island, flew to Jamaica just weeks ago to celebrate a special occasion with the girlfriend.

When contacted, the Westmoreland police confirmed with our news team that the UK man was reportedly attacked by an angry mob.

The police said that they have so far detained one man who they think can help them in their investigation.

Our news team was told that the police are investigating reports that the dispute may have stemmed from the quarrel about the charger. The police also said that they are following strong leads.
