A verdict in the trial of businessman Patrick Powell for failing to handover his licensed firearm to the police is to be handed down on July 11.

The date was set today by Parish Judge Vaughn Smith.

It came after prosecutors Yanique Gardener Brown and Natalie Malcolm and Powell's attorney Deborah Martin wrapped up their closing arguments in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.

Powell is on trial for allegedly failing to turn over his licensed Glock pistol and ammunition to the police for inspection.

At the time, the police were investigating the shooting death of 17-year-old Kingston College student Khajeel Mais.

The businessman was charged with Mais murder, but was subsequently freed.
