The trial of the three members of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) soldiers charged with the murder of Kingston businessman Keith Clarke is to start on July 1 in the Home Circuit Court.
The three JDF members are Lance corporals Greg Tinglin and Odel Buckley and Private Arnold Henry.
Defence lawyers Howard Hamilton, QC and Linton Gordon told the court last Friday that, in January, they received ballistics reports from the prosecution in relation to two bullet fragments.
The lawyers said the results were inconclusive, therefore, the defence would be getting its own expert to ascertain if anyone other than the soldiers were using high-powered weapons.
Clarke, the brother of former government minister Claude Clarke, was shot all over his body by members of the security forces at his East Kirkland Heights home in St Andrew in May 2010.
A post-mortem report had indicated that Clarke was shot 20 times, with the majority of the wounds located on his back.
The security forces had reportedly gone to the area to search for then fugitive Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.
