A 34- year- old joiner and his 32 -year-old common- law wife have been charged with the murder of ex-National Museum curator Dr. Claire Broadbridge at her Fondes Amandes, St. Ann’s home on September 2.
John Smith and Virginia Nedd, of Seales Avenue, Morvant, were charged yesterday.
The 80-year old woman was found bound, stabbed repeatedly and her throat slashed at her home. Her attackers had attempted to torch the house by setting fire to furniture which alerted neighbours who called the Fire Service.
Broadbridge’s lifeless body was subsequently found in her bedroom.
The woman’s son yesterday expressed disappointment in the actions of some of his mother’s neighbors who have reportedly refused to hand over to police, crucial video recordings that could assist police with the case.
