Lewis walked into the Serious Offences Court holding a Bible but was, however, not required to plea to the charge since it is indictable. He was remanded in custody until June 9, when a Preliminary Investigation will get under way.

Quammie, 21, was discovered at her home in Questelles at about 9:30am lying in a pool of blood with multiple chop and stab wounds about her body.

According to a police report, Quammie and her common law husband “had an altercation, which resulted in several chops being inflicted on her”.

The District Medical Officer pronounced Quammie dead on the spot.
