KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The case against attorney-at-law Sean Kinghorn has hit a snag after it was revealed that the main investigator has resigned and has expressed no interest in the case.

Kinghorn is charged jointly with Ruth Kelly and Linton Campbell in connection with the forgery of a will.

When the case was mentioned before Resident Magistrate (RM) Shelly Williams it was revealed that handwriting expert, Detective Sergeant Andrea Thomas has resigned from the Jamaica Constabulary Force and told the investigator she must not be contacted as she has no interest in the case.

The RM told the accused that the matter would be mentioned on February 19 before another Resident Magistrate.

The Crown is to decide the way forward in the matter when the case resumes.

Kinghorn were arrested and charged with forgery after the police said that a will was tampered with.

The three accused are being defended by attorneys-at-law Danielle Archer and Dale Staple.
