Police are being tight-lipped about the relationship between a murdered teenager and the 18-year-old female accused of killing him.
Amanda Allison Greene, a Dalhousie University student, was charged yesterday with the first-degree murder of Dillon Blair Jewett, 18. The Dartmouth man was found shot to death near the East Uniacke Quarry Oct. 3.
RCMP spokesman Sgt. Joe Taplin said evidence gathered in the investigation led police to arrest Greene Saturday morning at a service station in Eastern Passage.
“She was arrested without incident,” he said.
He declined to provide any more information, citing privacy legislation and the fact the case is now before the courts.
“The investigation is still ongoing at this time and we’re continuing to actively review information on the case,” he said.
He wouldn’t say if police expected to make any further arrests in relation to Jewett’s death.
RCMP have said a firearm was used to kill Jewett, but wouldn’t say how many times he was shot.
Greene’s Facebook page lists Jewett as a friend and Greene’s most recent status update was a tribute to the Dartmouth man. “I can’t believe you’re really gone, but I now know I have an angel in heaven watching down below. I love you and always will R.I.P. Dillon,” read the Oct. 7 post.
Greene is a graduate of Cole Harbour High School. She is due back in court Thursday.
