KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The Supreme Court yesterday turned down the bail application made on behalf of Constable Collis 'Chucky' Brown, one of eight Clarendon cops accused of extra-judicial killings.

A day earlier, the Supreme Court denied the bail applications of Constables Carl Bucknor and Jerome Whyte and Detective Corporal Kevin Adams.

The cops were previously denied bail in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court by Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey.

In a statement, the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) said the Supreme Court found no reason to reverse the decision of the magistrate.

The policemen were charged by INDECOM with the murder of eight civilians in Clarendon over a period of five years.

Constable Carl Bucknor was charged with the murder of Andrew Bisson on September 5, 2011.

Constable Jerome Whyte was charged with the murder of Anthony Trought on February 13, 2012.

Detective Corporal Kevin Adams has been charged with the murder of Adif Washington on January 14, 2013; Andrew Bisson on September 5, 2011; Sylvester Gallimore on May 5, 2011; Anthony Trought on February 13, 2012.

Constable Brown was charged for the murder of Robert 'Gutty' Dawkins on January 10, 2009; Phaebian Dinnal on February 13, 2010 and; the murders of Andrew Fearon and Dwayne Douglas on December 13, 2012.
