A retrial date for two policemen charged with the murder of two men abducted from a St Andrew plaza in 2004 could be set when the case returns to court today.

Corporal Louis Lynch and Constable Paul Edwards are currently on bail while they await a retrial.

Last January, a jury failed to return a verdict and the retrial was ordered.

Assistant Superintendent Victor Barrett, who was charged jointly with them, was acquitted.

The Crown is alleging that 20-year-old Kemar Walters, of Kitson Town, St Catherine and 45-year-old Oliver Duncan, of Olympic Gardens, Kingston 11 were abducted from Washington Plaza, along Washington Boulevard on December 23, 2004.

Walters and Duncan were allegedly shot to death after being taken from the plaza.

The bodies have not been recovered.
