The two men convicted for the murder of former Jamaican world heavyweight boxing champion, Trevor Berbick will know their fate on October 4.

The Court of Appeal heard submissions in the case and reserved its judgment yesterday.

Harold Berbick and Kenton Gordon are appealing their 2007 sentence and conviction.

Berbick was sentenced to life in prison while Gordon was sentenced to 14 years.

The attorneys in the case, Dr Randolph Williams and Keith Bishop, argued that the police did not follow proper procedure in arresting the men.

They further argued that the men were not given the benefit of a lawyer while they were in custody and being interrogated by an investigator.

The lawyers want the conviction and sentencing dismissed.

The body of the former boxer was found near his home at Norwich District in Portland, on October 28, 2006, with four chop wounds to the back of the head.
