A Sea Lots man and a Carenage woman are expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain magistrate today charged with the murder of WPC Nyasha Joseph. Charges were laid yesterday after homicide officers received instructions from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)

Joseph, 22, a mother of one, who was attached to the Morvant Police Station, had been a police officer for just four months when she was reported missing after leaving her home in Morvant on March 9.

Her body was fished out of the Gulf of Paria near Sea Lots on Wednesday.

Commenting on the latest developments with the case, Assistant Police Commissioner Crime Wayne Dick said: “On behalf of the TTPS, I commend the team for their commitment, professionalism and stick to intuitiveness attitude that caused them to overcome the many challenges which confronted them,” he said.

Dick said the officers were deserving of very high praise

“The executive of the TTPS is encouraging all officers to serve with pride—professionalism, respect, integrity, dignity and excellence,” he said.
