Suspect in Police Custody, interrogated over Horrific death of partner

A suspect is in police custody in the National Capital District over the death of a young woman in what appears to be yet another horrific case of violence against women.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Perou N'Dranou speaking on the NBC Morning Tru program this morning said the

suspect is being interrogated and charges will be laid once the investigation is completed.

A statement published on the NCD/Central Divisional Police Facebook page on Wednesday says the Criminal Investigation Division Homicide team at the Boroko Police Station is investigating the incident which occurred at the Korobosea Surburb on Tuesday.

Police homicide personnel have identified the woman as Jennelyn Kennedy aged between 19 and 20 years old and of mixed Gulf Province and Australian parentage.

The suspect is believed to be the woman's partner.

Police say her body was brought into the Emergency Ward by three young men in a white Toyota Land Cruiser.

Doctors at the hospital confirmed that she was dead before she was brought into the emergency ward.

The body of the deceased had bruises from the head to the toe and also has knife wounds to her right leg and at the lower thigh.

Chief of Emergency Medicine at the National Department of Health Dr Sam Yockopua said on Tuesday morning that during his first ward rounds he received a report from the night shift team of the death of the young woman.

He said it looked apparent that her death was slow and deliberately painful.

Dr Yockopua said her body had wounds on her hands, feet and head.

Police say the suspect, of mixed parentage Jiwaka and New Ireland, is now detained at the Boroko Police Station after the suspects father contacted police and arranged for his son to report to the Six Mile Police Station.

Fox 104 unit picked up the suspect and took him to the Boroko Police Station.

The relatives of the late Jennelyn Kennedy are calling a media conference in Port Moresby this afternoon.
