AS police prepared to take a Sangre Grande man to court this morning for the double murders of Videsh Subar and his sitter, Rose Mohammed, another suspect has been charged.

Shortly before 10 a.m. the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service tweeted that the second suspect – a relative of Mohammed – has been charged with the killings after being advised by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The relative, a 57-year-old man of Ajim Baksh Trace, Malabar – was detained last week.

On Sunday night a 25-year-old Sangre Grande man was charged with the double murders.

The two suspects are expected to appear in the Arima Magistrates' Court today.

Three other men remain in police custody for the killings.

Mohammed, 57, and Videsh, were found dead on June 28 in a bedroom at her home at Ajim Baksh Trace.

They had been tied up and their throats slit.
