Police have arrested and charged hotelier, Andrew Armour, for the manslaughter of Casey-Ann Schulman, an American student who was killed in a boating incident off the coast of Mero.

Schulman, 22, was visiting Dominica with friends and was in the sea when she was struck by the propeller of a boat captained by Andrew Armour on December 1, 2012.

She sustained major injuries to all parts of her body, including her head, and was pronounced dead at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

The authorities in Dominica have been under pressure from attorneys representing Schulman’s family who said they wanted “justice” for their daughter.

Armour appeared in court and was granted bail.

He is expected to reappear in the St. Joseph Magistrate Court on May 14.
