ST JAMES, Jamaica — The second of two men who handed themselves over to police almost two weeks ago has now been charged with the double murder for which he was being sought.

Christopher Campbell, also called Big Foot, was charged on Friday with two counts of murder and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

Campbell is charged in connection with the killing of Suewaine ‘Sue Sue’ Pennicott, 33, who was reportedly four months pregnant; and 19-year-old Barrington Clarke, also called ‘Peppa’.

Pennicott also had four-year-old twins.

The two were murdered in bed after gunmen invaded their home in a predawn attack on Chico Lane in Hendon, Norwood, St James, on June 4, 2022.

It was reported that about 3:50 am, the assailants made their entry into the couple’s home by breaking down a door. They then peppered the couple with bullets.

The incident left the community tense. Family members were distraught as they tried to come to grips with the killing.

Campbell, who handed himself over in the St Elizabeth Police Division on Saturday, June 18, was one of two men who surrendered to cops that weekend.

The other, Tadjay Clarke, 22, unemployed from Salt Spring, St James, went in a day earlier. He was accompanied by his lawyer.

The men were among 13 listed as wanted by the St James police the previous Thursday.
