Funeral service held for mother and four children murdered in Clarendon

Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Opposition leader Mark Golding were among hundreds of mourners at Sunday's funeral service for Kemesha Wright and her four children who were found murdered at their home in Cocoa Piece, Clarendon, on June 21.
 
The five-hour service took place at the Stuart Hall auditorium at Clarendon College in Chapelton and was attended by thousands of mourners. 
 
The well-wishers said they attended to show the bereaved family that they are not alone in their time of grief. 
 
In their presentations the Prime Minister and Mr Golding urged Jamaicans to change their mindset and learn to resolve conflicts without violence, as this could have spared the lives of the five Clarendon residents.
 
Those in attendance at the funeral were initially left puzzled when they saw only four caskets, but then the funeral director at Witter & Sons funeral home, Trevor Witter, explained that this was because the two year-old shared a casket with the mother. This arrangement was requested by the family.
 
The family was laid to rest at Suttons cemetery also in North Central Clarendon.
 
Miss Wright's cousin, Rushane Barnett, pleaded guilty to the murders in the Home Circuit Court on Thursday and is scheduled to be sentenced on September 22.
