(Trinidad Express) A fifty-one-year-old nephew of murdered United States retiree, Yvonne Trumpet-Nicholson is expected to appear before an Arima Magistrate today charged with, “various sexual offences.”

Police said the suspect, David Trumpet, who lives at Mohammed Street, St Augustine, was detained last week (November 23) after he appeared before a Tunapuna Magistrate on another sexual offence charge.

His aunt, United States resident Trumpet-Nicholson, 74, was found dead near to the T&T Regiment barracks at Cumuto on November 19.

Her family, who also live in the United States, travelled to Trini­dad from New York after they could not get in touch with her when she arrived at Piarco.

Nicholson’s relative said: “Family, friends and loved ones are invited to Yvonne Trumpet-Nicholson’s better known as “Eve” memorial service tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the Bethel World Outreach Ministry located at 1 Bethel Avenue, Arima.
