Jamaican Chopped Wife to Death Found With Rope And Cutlass in Bush

Ja­maican Adri­an By­field has ap­peared in court charged with the mur­der of his wife, Rachael Lo­gan.

By­field, 49, a se­cu­ri­ty guard, stood be­fore Siparia Se­nior Mag­is­trate Mar­garet Alert who read the charge that be­tween Feb­ru­ary 20 and 22, he mur­dered Lo­gan at Quar­ry Road, Quar­ry Vil­lage, Siparia.

The body of 46-year-old Lo­gan was found in a bed­room of her home by her sons, ages 10 and 27, on Feb­ru­ary 21. The moth­er of four was chopped to death.

By­field was re­port­ed­ly found by hid­ing in bush­es with a rope and a cut­lass at his feet and was sub­se­quent­ly ar­rest­ed. He was charged by PC Bernard on the ad­vice of the Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions.

Pros­e­cu­tor Sgt Starr Ja­cob told the court a par­tial file has been sent to the DPP but there are about 25 to 30 state­ments. She said the en­tire file should be at the DPP’s of­fice in about three months.

The mag­is­trate ex­plained to By­field that a pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry will be held and then a de­ter­mi­na­tion will be made on whether there is enough ev­i­dence for him to be com­mit­ted to stand tri­al in the High Court.

The mat­ter was ad­journed to March 27.
