Bails extend for cops in Shrewsbury murders

The two policemen charged in relation to the 2013 shooting deaths of three male relatives in Shrewsbury, Westmoreland, had their bails extended when they appeared in the Trelawny Circuit Court yesterday.

Constables Kenroy Hines and Damane Campbell are charged for the murders of brothers Andrew and Triston Brydson and their cousin Kingsley Green.

Yesterday, the court was told that a number of statements and a list of the prosecution’s intended witnesses are yet to be served on the defense.

Subsequently, presiding judge Justice Georgianna Fraser put off the case to June 15, when the court will determine the way forward.

The Brydson brothers and Green were killed in Shrewsbury, Westmoreland, by a police team which claimed the men had engaged them in a shoot-out.

However, the police’s account was disputed by residents and relatives of the men, who staged several days of protest demanding justice for their deaths.
