The prosecution wants the speeding motorist, who clipped three cars before slamming into a police vehicle, killing one lawman instantly and forcing the other into retirement medically unfit, to be given a short, sharp jail term.

But Tre Shaquille Murray’s attorney said a fine plus a suspended sentence and having his licence taken away would be justice.

Murray, 26, a student, of Spring Hall, St Lucy, was in the No. 2 Supreme Court yesterday where he pleaded guilty to causing the death of Station Sergeant Clifford Bridgeman on March 26, 2017, by driving his car L97 on Carrington Road at the junction with Edgecumbe Hill, St Philip, in a manner and at a speed dangerous to the public.

Murray said he wanted to send his “deepest apologies” to the Bridgeman family and hoped they could forgive him. (HLE)
