July 4th is the date relatives have set for the Thanksgiving Service for the life of Carissa Chandler, who was allegedly gunned down by her partner late last month.
The service will begin at 2 pm at the Tindall Seventh-day Adventist Church on the Valley Road. This is according to a relative who confirmed the date in response to OBSERVER media’s queries yesterday morning.
On June 15th, a candlelight vigil was held for the 29-year-old deceased who was shot during the early morning hours of May 23rd, allegedly during an argument with Tedson Knowles, her partner.
The incident occurred in their New Winthorpes home and Knowles reportedly drove the 29-year-old woman to the hospital, and later told lawmen they had been attacked and robbed, and Chandler was shot by the offender.
Reports from residents who heard a gunshot coming from the apartment, as well as other evidence, led to 44-year-old Knowles being charged with murder and he is now on remand awaiting his committal.
