A news release from the police's Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) said that the body of 40-year-old Dr Sonya-Kay Forbes was found by a relative about 7:19 pm.
“Forbes was seen lying on the floor of her bedroom with a stab wound to her abdomen. She was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead,” the CCU said.
Dr Forbes had been a contestant in the Miss Jamaica World contest in 1999.
Detectives assigned to the St Andrew Central Police Division are investigating.
