(CMR) A woman and her two daughters pleaded guilty in the murder of her sister, who was shot in her Trelawny home last year.
Tamara Geddes (36) was shot and killed by a lone gunman at about 8:30 pm in the presence of her 10-year-old daughter on June 19, 2020.
Geddes and her young daughter were reportedly at home when the lone gunman, wearing a mask, entered and robbed her of cash and her cell phone before shooting her.
The woman's sister Nadeen Geddes (39) and her two daughters Shanice Ruddock (22) and Janae Smith (16), were among seven people arrested for the murder.
When they appeared in the Trelawny Circuit court on Monday, Geddes pleaded guilty to murder and conspiracy to murder, while her daughters pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder and failing to inform the authorities of the crime.
Investigations lead police to Geddes and her daughter, who confessed and named two men who were hired to kill their family member.
Bryan Shelley, the alleged contract killer who was hired to kill Geddes, did not enter a plea on Monday because he did not have a lawyer.
The other man was found not guilty because there was insufficient evidence to convict him.
Allegations are that Nadeen Geddes hired Shelly to kill her sister in a family dispute over land.
