  • ID parade for Kirkland's killing

The Independent Commission of Investigations has taken over the investigation into the March 20 shooting death of 16-year-old Vanessa Kirkland by the police.

Three policemen implicated in the shooting are to face an identification parade next week.

Kirkland, an Immaculate High School student, was shot in what the police have described as a shooting incident involving criminals and lawmen on Norman Lane in Kingston.

Residents of Greenwich Farm, where Kirkland lived, protested the killing. They said Kirkland was killed when members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force approached a car in which she was travelling and opened fire.

  • Decision to be made on NSWMA manager in fraud case

The police yesterday completed their two-day interview with the former special projects manager at the National Solid Waste Management Authority, Mark Rodney.

A decision is now to be made by the police as to whether Rodney will be charged.

Rodney, who is being represented by attorney-at-law Peter Chamapagnie, was taken into custody and questioned in relation to illicit transactions in excess of $160 million.
