A policeman secures the crime scene where the burnt bodies of five residents were found in a tenament yard, on March Pen Road in Spanish Town, St Catherine, on Sunday.

The main suspect implicated in Sunday’s killing of five people in Spanish Town, Marvin Campbell Sr, who yesterday surrendered to the police is yet to retain legal representation so that he can be interviewed by investigators.

Communication Officer at the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay told our news centre this morning that if Campbell is unable to seek representation by tomorrow then a decision may be made to assign him a legal aid counsel.

Campbell, otherwise called 'Fat Man' was yesterday handed over to members of the High Command at the Office of the Commissioner of Police by Bishop Rohan Edwards.

Three children are among the five people killed in Sunday's attack on March Pen Road in Spanish Town, St Catherine.

They are: two-year-old, Koyandra Wynter, nine-year-old, Revaughn Evans and 14-year-old Marvin Campbell Jnr.

The other casualties were 22-two-year-old, Venisha Bartley and 24-year-old Salesha Evans.

Residents reported that gunmen dressed in dark-coloured clothing, identified themselves as policemen and then barged into two houses occupied by the five people before opening fire and setting the premises ablaze.

Campbell was wanted for a number of offences including incest and was named as a person of interest in connection with a recent triple murder in Spanish Town.
