Police Say Burnt Vehicle Belonged to Felina James

Albert Steven Moreira, believed to be Felina James’ killer, was arraigned for the crime of murder when he appeared in the magistrate’s court on Wednesday.  The B.D.F. soldier was reportedly in a relationship with James up to the time of her chopping death.  Last week, investigators discovered the charred remains of a vehicle in Steadfast Community which matched the description of a maroon Kia Sorento that belonged to the mother of two.  They sought the assistance of the Customs Department in determining whether the vehicle identification numbers are the same.  News Five has been able to confirm that the VIN numbers are a match.  Today, lead investigator Wilfredo Ferrufino provided an update in case.

“Are you able to provide details on the relation between the victim and the accused, sir?”

 

Insp. Wilfredo Ferrufino

“We know that previously, before, they were involved in a relationship; however, the relationship is still ongoing to determine if they were indeed in a relationship at the time of the incident.”

“The last time we had spoken, I think it was Mr. Cowo, if I am not mistaken, police encountered remnants or remains of a vehicle at a chop shop in Stann Creek on the Valley Road, I think he said, and the police were in the process of trying to determine if this was her missing vehicle.  Have you been able to determine or confirm that it is or isn’t?”

 

Insp. Wilfredo Ferrufino

“Certain parts of the vehicle were taken to, I believe it was Customs, I believe they have a process in which they try to see if they can get the VIN number.  There is no update in regards to that, I think the process is still ongoing and we are awaiting an update on that.”
