A woman sex worker is in police custody after she reportedly stabbing a man to death.
The incident reportedly occurred in Runaway Bay, St Ann on Wednesday morning.
The identity of the dead man and the female, believed to be a sex worker has been withheld by the police.
Indications are that the man and the sex worker got into a fuss after they were reportedly engaged in a sex act, for which the man was required to pay a sum of money.
However, at the end of the act, he sought to forcefully renege on the arrangement by taking back his money at knife point.
It was reported that in a rage, the sex worker used a knife to stab the man in his upper back.
The man was rushed to the St Ann’s Bay Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, while the sex worker was taken into police custody.
