JASMINE Hartin, the daughter-in-law of British billionaire Lord Ashcroft, has been charged with manslaughter in the death of a Belize cop.
Hartin, 32, is facing manslaughter by negligence charges after the body of cop Henry Jemmott was found floating in the sea near San Pedro, Belize, on Friday.
Jemmott, 42, was reportedly shot while drinking with Lord Ashcroft's daughter-in-law and had a head wound like an assassination, his sister, Marie Jemmott Tzul, told the DailyMail.
She added that her brother had known Hartin, but that there was no romantic relationship between the two, even though they appear to have been drinking alone together on a pier before the shooting.
Hartin told authorities that she was giving Jemmott, a police superintendent, a shoulder massage when he asked her to hand him his pistol, according to local media.
The Canadian socialite then alleged that the Glock accidentally went off and shot him in the back of the head, according to sources.
