The murder trial of Harry McLeod, popularly known as ‘Harry Dog’, has again been stalled, this time because of insufficient jurors.
McLeod has been in custody since 2009.
Earlier this week, the case was placed on the court’s priority list.
When the case came up in the Home Circuit Court today effort was made to empanel a jury.
However, only eight jurors were selected from a pool of 39 persons who turned up for jury duty.
Senior Puisne Judge Gloria Smith then released the eight persons and ordered McLeod to return on September 29, when the trial is expected to begin.
Justice Smith again lamented that the absence of witnesses as well as jurors is holding up matters which are ready for trial.
McLeod, who is a reputed top lieutenant of former west Kingston strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke is charged jointly with three other men for the murder of Damion Henry, of Tivoli Gardens in West Kingston.
Henry was shot dead on June 8, 2008 on Spanish Town Road, Kingston.
