Reports are that a man and a woman have been held and the man is believed to be a former lover of the deceased woman. The other suspect is the man's sister.

"We can say that two persons have been taken in custody and are being questioned and could be soon possibly charged in connection with the triple murder," said a police source on Monday.

Police were looking at a number of leads including information that the deceased woman, Kashief Jackson, 29, was involved in a love triangle turned sour.

Information sourced also pointed to the deceased woman having been entangled in a dispute with another woman who her spouse was reportedly still sexually involved with.

Reports from the Mavis Bank police are that the bodies of Jackson and her two children; one-year-old Aviere Williams and seven-day-old Aranza Williams were found their home in Tower Hill on Wednesday July 18.

Ms Jackson's body had chop wounds and the room was set ablaze.

A post mortem will be conducted this week to determine the cause of death of the children. It is suspected that they died of smoke inhalation.
