The Detective Constable who confessed that he made up a statement and falsified witnesses in a murder case, should know his fate today.

Detective Constable, Carey Lyn-Sue is scheduled to appear before the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court today for sentencing for perverting the course of justice.

Detective, Lyn- Sue pleaded guilty when he appeared in court last week.

His attorney has made the case that Detective Lyn-Sue’s actions were not a case of spite, as several witnesses had supplied details about the person said to have committed the murder but refused to give written statements.

In January he confessed, under oath, that he fabricated a statement in the case against Jason James, who is said to be a member of the notorious Killer Bees Gang, based in Granville, St James.

James was charged in relation to the April 1, 2006 gun murder of 23-year-old Sheldon Shaw of Retirement in Granville.

The detective told the court that he wrote the statement after witnesses were unwilling to come forward.

No order was made against James, who is currently serving time in prison for unrelated gun charges.

Lyn-Sue said he decided to confess saying he had become a Christian.
