ROCK, Trelawny — A memorial service for the lives of 26-year-old hotel worker Raymonde Alexis-Brissett and her baby daughter will be held at the William Knibb Memorial Baptist Church in Falmouth on Saturday.

Interment will follow at the Falmouth cemetery.

On Friday, June 6, Alexis Brissett, a Haitian national, who was eight months pregnant, was bludgeoned to death with a piece of steel at her home in Rock, Trelawny, allegedly by one of her countrymen.

Last week 44-year-old construction worker Elrick Josephs, who also resided in Rock, Trelawny, was charged with the murder of Alexis Brissett.

Alexis Brissett's then unborn baby was taken from the dead woman's body by doctors at the Falmouth Hospital following the incident.

The child who was later named Elizabeth Raymonde-Brissett, however, died at the Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay, a week later.
