Road work dispute leads to fatal stabbing of taxi operator ‘Taliban'

The Trelawny police have taken a 55-year-old farmer into custody in connection with Wednesday's fatal stabbing of his neighbour with whom he reportedly had a domestic dispute.

The deceased has been identified as 48-year-old taxi operator, Ainsworth Fairclough, otherwise called ‘Taliban’, of Freeman’s Hall, Trelawny.

Reports are that Fairclough and the suspect had an argument over a road that the suspect was building, which led to his house from the main road.

The argument was said to have escalated into a fight and the taxi operator was reportedly stabbed in his chest with a knife that was brought into play.

He was rushed to the Percy Junior Hospital in Spalding on the bordering parish of Manchester, where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect was subsequently arrested by the Ulster Spring police who are investigating the incident.
