Police officer cleared of murder charge
Lawman Everton Randolph Gittens has been cleared of the murder of Selwyn “Blues” Knight.
The decision was handed down moments ago by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
Gittens, now 50, of Lot 1, Dash Gap, Bank Hall, St Michael, was charged with murdering Knight on March 15, 2015; recklessly engaging in conduct which placed Knight’s son Junior Knight in danger of death or serious bodily harm and wounding Junior Knight with intent, all on the same date.
Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant, who referred to the public interest of the matter, found that the prosecution had not made out a prima facie case in relation to any of the matters.
She then told Gittens he was free to go. (PR)
