The Manchester police are now questioning the boyfriend of an employee of the Mandeville tax office in connection with her early morning murder.
The woman, identified as Keniesha McKenzie-Gayle, was shot dead, allegedly by her boyfriend who is an ex soldier of the Jamaica Defence Force.
The details surrounding the incident are not immediately clear.
However, it happened at the couple's home in New Green, about five kilometres outside of Mandeville.
The incident has shocked staff members at the Mandeville Collectorate.
Director of communications at Tax Administration Jamaica Meris Haughton says the Mandeville Tax Office has been closed for the day as staff members receive grief counselling.
