Almost 4 months after a man was buried, police have charged a Guyanese woman for causing his death after an investigation conducted revealed that his death was a homicide.
Police said on Monday that the body was not exhumed, but the findings of a toxicology report which was analysed in another territory, as well a confession video, contributed to the charges against Shane Ann Ambrose. If found guilty she can be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years imprisonment.
Ambrose, a 24-year-old national of Nonso, New Amsterdam, Berbice, Guyana, who resided at Simon, St Andrew, was arrested, formally charged for the offence of Non-Capital Murder in connection with the death of Clifford Marshall.
Ambrose appeared at court on Friday, 29 October 2021, and was remanded to custody at Her Majesty’s Prisons. She will return to court on 12 November 2021.
In August, police confirmed that there is an active criminal investigation into the death of Clifford Marshall who died in June and was buried in July 2021. This confirmation came after Ambrose in a social media video posting claimed that she gave him poison and is not sure if she caused his death.
“I don’t know if I killed him, but I gave him poison,” said the young lady in the video. She claimed to be a 23-year-old Guyanese who was in a relationship for 3 years with Marshall.
“I gave him weedless poison, I don’t know if I killed him, but I know to myself that I gave him, I do it and it just hurting me. This is the first time I did something like this, I would not take it anymore, so I had to, I don’t know,” she said in the video as tears rolled down her eyes.
She claimed that he physically abused her and threatened her life as well as sexually assaulted her 3-year-old daughter on more than one occasion.
