The accused, whose name is being withheld, was arrested by the Constant Spring Police on Friday, July 7, in connection with the death of 46-year-old developer Andre Rickards, of Havendale in St Andrew, who was constructing a house next door to the accused in Stony Hill.

Reports are that the two men had a long-running disagreement over the placement of a wall and, on Friday, the dispute led to Rickards' death under unusual circumstances.

The accused reportedly invited Rickards over to his house and offered him fruits. But, it is reported that as soon as Rickards went over to the property, he was stabbed, disarmed of his licensed firearm and shot multiple times.

Rickards was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police subsequently arrested the suspect, who is still being questioned over the incident.
