A male security guard appeared in court on Wednesday charged with killing his male lover.
Christopher Alexander, also known as Kim, 35, was arrested at the scene of the crime. He appeared before Magistrate Christine Charles in the San Fernando First Magistrates’ Court.
The charge alleged that on December 18 at the National Energy Skills Center (NESC) in Debe, Alexander murdered 35-year-old Keil Lempsey of St Augustine during a domestic argument.
Police officers went to the NESC campus where they found Lempsey’s body wrapped in a sheet and stuffed in a garbage bag. He had been stabbed multiple times.
Alexander, of Corinth Settlement, Ste Madeleine, was charged by PC Smith following instructions from acting Director of Public Prosecutions Joan Honore-Paul. He was represented by duty counsel Indira Binda.
Prosecutor Sgt Denzil Alexander told the magistrate it would take about a week for the file to be sent to the DPP’s office for a prosecutor to be assigned to the case.
