Homicide officers probing the murder received instructions shortly before 7 pm yesterday and the two were jointly charged with the murder. The two accused, a 34-year-old joiner and his 32-year-old common-law wife of Seales Avenue, Morvant are expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today.
