Two policemen who were slapped with several murder counts for allegedly being part of a 'death squad' in Clarendon, were both denied bail this week. 

Lawyers representing Detective Corporal Kevin Adams and Constable Collis ‘Chuckie’ Brown, were denied bail when they appeared before the Supreme Court.

Detective Adams who is charged for the fatal shooting of Anthony Trought is to go to trial on September 19 while the plea and case management for Constable Brown is set for April 1.

In 2014, a total of 11 policemen were arrested and placed before the courts on several counts of murder and shooting with intent arising from incidents which investigators say were initially reported as civilian homicides.

The investigations are being handled by the Independent Commission Of Investigations (INDECOM).

Last month INDECOM won a case against police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams after a High Court judge ordered him to hand over the personnel records of all the policemen now facing criminal charges for allegedly being part of a 'death squad' in Clarendon.
