Two prison officers and a police officer have been arrested and charged for breach of trust in relation to the fatal prison stabbing of Nichail Chambers back in May.

The officers in question are Mark Kendall, Sharlene Maduro and formerly interdicted police officer, Karina Brea. 

They were arrested today.

“All three persons will appear in court at a future date,” Royal Virgin Islands Police Force said in a media release moments ago.

This news marks exactly two weeks since police announced that five prisoners were charged in relation to the said stabbing incident.

Inmates Andraes Norford, Essadro Jefferson, Rean-J Christopher, Dee Dijon Hodge, and Kareem Durant are all charged for murder.

“Additionally, Norford and Jefferson were charged with attempted murder in relation to injuries sustained to another inmate,” the RVIPF said in a media release at the time.

Chambers, the inmate that died, was 29. 

In the wake of the stabbing, an ex-convict at Her Majesty’s Prison revealed in an exclusive interview with BVI News that during his time incarcerated, select inmates were inconspicuously made to leave the prison for minutes to hours at a time at the pleasure of prison officers.
