The Boulevard murder trial has been put off until tomorrow, when Justice Horace Marsh is expected to complete his summation.

The judge has been making his summation to the 12-member jury since last week.

Corporals Paul Edwards and Louie Lynch and Assistant Superintendent Victor Barrett on are trial, in connection with the disappearance of 20-year-old Kemar Walters and 44-year-old Oliver Duncan on December 23, 2004.

The trial began on October 29.

The Crown’s main witness, who is a former policeman, has testified that Edwards told him that the men were shot and killed.

Barrett is accused of covering up the incident after a report was made to him.

The three policemen have given unsworn statements denying that they were involved in the incident.
