Detectives in the St. Catherine South Division have made a breakthrough in a months-old case with the charging of two men in connection with the March 2021 murder of Uriel Pinnock in Central Village in the parish.

Charged are:

  1. Thirty-five-year-old Kemar Harding, otherwise called ‘Stamma’, a farmer of Old Harbour Road, Spanish Town in St. Catherine
  2. Twenty-year-old Dominique Dinier, otherwise called ‘Swims’, of Central Village, St. Catherine

Both men have been charged with Murder and Illegal Possession of Firearm and Ammunition

 It is alleged that about 9:35 p.m. on Friday, March 26, 2021, Pinnock was standing outside his gate when Harding, Dinier and another man opened gunfire at him,  hitting him to the head. Pinnock was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital.

After months of following leads, Harding and Dinier were arrested on January 28, 2022. They were subsequently charged after a question and answer session. Their court date is being arranged.
