A Jamaican teenager boy, accused of raping, buggering and strangling to death a nine-year-old girl in June 2018, has been found guilty on all three counts.

On Friday, Justice Courtney Day said a research will have to be done to determine the approach to take in sentencing the accused.

Allegations are that as they walked home from school, the boy invited the girl to pick apples.

Later in the day, the girl’s body was found near a guava tree, which was about 15-20 feet from the apple tree.

A post mortem report presented in court last week showed that the child died of asphyxia caused by manual strangulation.

She also had lacerations of the vagina and anus.  The boy, now 17, was 13 at the time the incident allegedly occurred.
