Four years after the death of a two-year-old girl, police have moved to charge a suspect, who is already behind bars charged with the murder of the toddler’s mother.

The suspect, Adrian Noel, will appear in court on Monday charged with the murder of two-year-old Kimora Roopnarine.

Roopnarine was beaten to death in September 2013 and according to an autopsy report she died from blunt force trauma. Two of her ribs had been broken in the assault.

According to the child’s grandmother Erica Thomas, on September 16, 2013, the child was picked up from pre-school by her step-father, who took her to the Chaguanas District Health Facility, and reported that she was having difficulty breathing.

The child was pronounced dead on arrival.

Roopnarine’s step-father is currently charged with murdering her mother Patricia Fletcher-Thomas on May 16, 2016.

Fletcher-Thomas was chopped to death at her Enterprise Street, Longdenville home.

According to police, Constable Lewis of the Homicide Division’s Cold Case Unit pursued the investigation and laid the fresh murder charge against the suspect.
