"Berbick, 51, suffered a gaping head wound in the attack in his native Norwich village, 146 miles east of Kingston, and was pronounced dead at the Port Antonio Hospital, police said. They said the assailant was carrying a weapon such as a machete or hatchet that cut a deep "chop wound."

Wow that's crazy. I read about him dying a few days ago on fightnews but they didn't mention him being murdered. He was a likeable guy.

Updates - Arrests made in the Berbick murder case:

"A 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the killing of former heavyweight champion Trevor Berbick, who was bludgeoned and left to die in a church courtyard next to his family's home in a rural hamlet.
Several residents of the remote farming community in Norwich district said the suspect was involved in a land dispute with the troubled boxer."

More arrests -

"Jamaican police have made a second arrest in the slaying of former Canadian and world heavyweight boxing champion Trevor Berbick, confirming that one of the suspects is a family member.

The arrest of a second man, in his 40s, came late Sunday after hours of extensive questioning of the first suspect, a 20-year-old man, said Karl Angell, spokesman for the Jamaica Constabulary Force in Kingston."

It's a shame. Although he had his troubles out of the ring and after boxing, he seemed to have turned his life around. It is a sad loss, not just for boxing, but for his family & friends.
