A plea and case management hearing has been set for April 15 for Michael McLean, who is accused of orchestrating, from behind bars, the murders of three people, including a policeman.

McLean and his three co-accused, Melville McIntosh, Sashkia Sammon, and Brenda Shaw, appeared before Justice Glen Brown in the Home Circuit Court today.

It is alleged that in 2010 McLean ordered the killing of Constable Otis Barrett who was shot and killed in Linstead, St Catherine on September 19, 2010.

Barrett was attached to the Mobile Reserve.

More than a month later, Evian Marsden and Michelle Fisher, who were of a Western Park address in Clarendon, were found dead on Pennant Terrace off Red Hills Road in St Andrew, on October 25, 2010.

It's alleged that those murders were linked to the cop's murder.

The Crown is also alleging that the police used a cell phone reportedly found in McLean's possession at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre to link him to the crimes.

McLean has been in custody since 2006 in connection with the murders of six members of a family in Duhaney Pen, St Thomas.
