Peter Champagnie represents, Gratino Green, one of two men charged with the murder of police Constable Lynden Barrett in the west Kingston community of Denham Town in July.

Attorney-at-law Peter Champagnie says he expects to receive today all the evidence the prosecution has against his client who is accused of killing a policeman. 

Champagnie represents, Gratino Green, one of two men charged with the murder of police Constable Lynden Barrett in the west Kingston community of Denham Town in July.

On Tuesday, a court ordered the Crown to make all disclosure to the defence by Thursday. 

Champagnie says he was informed yesterday that the documents are ready and he intends to collect them today. 

The case will again be mentioned on Monday. 

Meanwhile, the Independent Commission of Investigations is continuing its probe into the alleged beating of Green while in police custody.

Champagnie says he is extremely concerned after his client reported that he suffered a fracture to this nose as a result of the beating.

Five weeks ago, Marlon Cherrington, the main suspect in the brutal slaying of woman Constable Crystal Thomas, died from injuries he received while in custody at the Hunt's Bay Police Station in St Andrew.
