The Keith Clarke murder case has been pushed back to October 11 in the Home Circuit Court to allow for further examination of spent shells.

Following an application from defence lawyers, Justice Bryan Sykes ordered that all 29 firearms from Jamaica Defence Force soldiers who had gone to Clarke's house on May 27, 2010 be submitted to the prosecution by July 19.

After the submission, the Crown is to have its ballistics expert conduct examinations and a report produced and served on the defence before August 16.

The judge further ordered that the defence conduct its examination before September 27.

Justice Sykes says if the defence proposes to call their experts at the trial, then the report is to be served on the crown on or before October 4.

Lance corporals Greg Tinglin, Odel Buckley, and private Arnold Henry are before the courts for the shooting death of businessman Keith Clarke.

Clarke was shot all over his body by members of the security forces at his home in St Andrew in May 2010.
