Simeon Ramsay, the school teacher who is accused of killing his parents in Portmore, St Catherine in February, was remanded in police custody when he appeared in the St Catherine Parish Court last week.

The 25-year-old educator was charged with the murders of his 69-year-old father, Cecil Ramsay, who was a minister of religion; and his 55-year-old mother, Phyllis Ramsay, who was the Acting Vice-Principal of St Andrew Preparatory School.

When the case was mentioned in court, prosecutors indicated to the presiding judge that the case was incomplete.

Consequently, Ramsay was remanded in custody until June 24.

Reports are that about 4 am on Friday, February 4, residents found a motor vehicle belonging to one of the elder Ramsays abandoned on a side of a road in Portmore.

Checks were made and bloodstains were reportedly found in the vehicle.

The police were called and following further investigations, they went to the house of the couple, where their bodies were found with several stab wounds.

Simeon Ramsay was subsequently arrested and charged with the double murders.

He is reportedly suffering from mental illness, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
