Up to press time last night, a suspect who was held in connection with the murder of an eight-year-old girl in Top Hill, St Thomas, yesterday afternoon, was not charged.

Dead is Celena Edmon, a student of the Whitehall Primary School, who was sent to a shop by her parent around 2 p.m., but never returned home.

According to reports, the man who has been arrested was seen with the child an hour before her body was found around 3 p.m.
