Sandhill resident charged for brutal murder of woman

Story PictureHe was detained on Tuesday for the brutal murder of Sandhill resident, Dorla Pitterson and today thirty year old Orlando Wade was formally arraigned for the crime. Wade showed no emotion this morning when Chief Magistrate Margaret Gabb read him the charge of Murder. No plea was taken as the offence is indictable and Wade was remanded to Hattieville Prison until July third. On Tuesday, the body of Dorla Pitterson was found in a latrine in Sandhill. She had been strangled, hit on the forehead with a blunt object, and it is also suspected that she was raped. The forty-five year old was last seen by villagers in Wade’s company. They tell police that on Monday night they heard screams near Sylvia’s Cool Spot, the same property on which the latrine is located.
