Alleged Kingston gang leader and businessman Uriel James is to return to the High Court today on charges for major crimes including murder.

He will be represented in two of his cases today by Queen’s Counsel, Jacqueline Samuels Brown and attorney-at-law Tom Tavares-Finson in a third.

And he is also accused of killing a man in Rose Town in Kingston in the 1990s.

He is also before the Gun Court on charges of shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm.

And the police have said he is being investigated for other serious offences.

The police had reported that witness statements, which implicated him in a number of murders and robberies, were found inside his upscale St Andrew home during an operation in March 2013.

James is said to be the leader of the Rose Town-based Discipline Gang.
