Soldiers in Keith Clarke murder want new trial venue

The three soldiers implicated in the murder of businessman Keith Clarke are to return to court on January 18.

Clarke was shot at his home in East Kirkland Heights, St Andrew in May 2010 in the aftermath of the Tivoli incursion.

When the case was called up in the Home Circuit Court this morning, the case was put off following a request for a change of venue.

The three soldiers were removed from confinement to the Jamaica Defence Force compound in October.

The accused lance corporals Greg Tinglin and Odel Buckley and private Arnold Henry were granted bail in the sum of $2 million each with sureties when they first appeared in court in July.

The bail conditions were also varied to allow them to attend to their personal business.

In varying the bail conditions, Justice Christine McDonald ordered the soldiers to report to the Cross Roads police station between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
