Court today for alleged Tredegar Park killer cops

Published:Thursday | July 11, 2013 | 9:25 AM

The two policemen charged with the 2010 murders of two men in Tredegar Park, St Catherine, are scheduled to return to the Home Circuit Court today.



Corporal David Hutchinson and Constable Kenneth Daley were charged with the double murder on July 2 following a ruling by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).



Sixteen-year-old Derrick Bolton and Rohan Dixon were allegedly shot by the police on August 13, 2010.



It was reported that the police were chasing gunmen who had earlier killed eight persons in Tredegar Park.



The Crown is alleging that shortly before Bolton and Dixon were fatally shot, voices were heard saying that these were the men causing trouble in the area.



The policemen were granted bail set at $700,000 each.



Hutchinson is being represented by Valerie Neita-Roberston while Daley’s attorney is Peter Champagnie.



The two accused were among the eight policemen who had unsuccessfully taken a motion to the Constitutional Court challenging an order from INDECOM to give statements on the police operation at the time.
