Lawyer problems delay Shrewsbury case

Published:Wednesday | November 20, 2013 | 1:20 PM

The trial of the two policemen linked to the shooting of three cousins in Shrewsbury, Westmoreland has failed to start yet again.

Constables Kenroy Hines and Damane Campbell have been scheduled to reappear before the Trelawny Circuit Court on November 27.

When the matter was called up this morning, the court said it needed to verify that legal representation for Hines was settled.

At the previous hearing last week, it was indicated that Jacqueline Samuels-Brown was Hines’ attorney.

However, she did not turn up today and the court said it does not have any record that she has ever appeared in the case to represent the accused.

The men are charged in connection with the March 15 shooting deaths of 28-year-old fire-fighter Andrew Brydson, 24-year-old Triston Brydson, and 38-year-old Kingsley Green.

The shooting triggered several days of protests as residents accused the police of extrajudicial killing.
