Fifty-year-old Leroy Chacon of Trainline Port Kaituma, North West District was charged on Tuesday for trespassing with the intent to commit a sexual offence on a woman who died from COVID-19.

Chacon appeared at the Matthews Ridge Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Delon Bess via zoom and pleaded guilty to the offence. He was remanded to prison and have to reappear Wednesday at 9am for sentencing.

The woman’s body was being stored at the Port Kaituma Mortuary when Chacon visited the mortuary at about 07:45h and attempted to perform sex on the body.

The incident was reported to the Police and Chacon was arrested.
