KINGSTON, Jamaica — A man believed to be a suspect in the murder of one of two medical doctors who were killed recently in Mandeville is now in police custody.

The Denham Town police said the man was held in a recent operation in the area.

"The man was held and the police are to contact police in Mandeville to find out if the person in custody is wanted in that area," a senior police officer.

In July police reported that a well-known radiologist, Dr Phillip Chamberlain was stabbed to death at his office in Mandeville.

A month before another doctor, Clinton Lewis, was shot dead at his home in Mandeville.

Dr Lewis worked at the Black River Hospital in St Elizabeth.
