Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke, the brother of former Tivoli Gardens crime lord, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, will today begin his own defence at his firearm trial in the Gun Court.

Livity, is facing the charges of shooting with intent and illegal possession of a firearm.

The Crown closed its case yesterday, after calling nine witnesses in almost four weeks of testimonies.

Livity is accused of firing at the police, during the May 2010 unrest in sections of west Kingston.

The police had gone into the area to execute an arrest warrant on Livity’s brother, who was being sought for extradition to the United States.

Prosecutors Lisa Palmer Hamilton and Adley Duncan are representing the Crown, while attorney-at-law Carolyn Reid Cameron is representing Livity.
