Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

The Old Harbour police in St Catherine have made a breakthrough in the murder of a teacher who met his demise over two months ago.

Those charged with the murder of Nigel Riley, 40-year-old teacher of the Excelsior High School, are Travis Perry, 19, of Darlington Avenue, Old Harbour, and 20-year-old Gavin O'Sullivan of Bodles, Old Harbour.

Police investigators picked up the two men earlier this month and charged them with the teacher's death last Saturday.

The Star was informed that the accused men are scheduled to appear in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on September 2.

On June 9, about 7:30 a.m., passers-by stumbled upon Riley's body on a football field in Lennonville, Old Harbour.

The police were summoned, and it was observed that it had a wound to the neck and the right arm was partially severed.

An investigation led by Detective Sergeant Constantine Campbell resulted in the arrest and charge of the suspects.
