Jamaican police officers charged with murder


Added 18 May 2019


KINGSTON – Two police officers are due to appear in the Home Circuit Court on Monday after they had been slapped with murder, manslaughter, shooting with intent, and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition following an incident that left two civilians and a police officer dead last month.

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) said Corporals Kirk Frazer and Rhamone Scott are to be charged with nine offences arising out of the controversial shootings in Chedwin Park, Spanish Town, south-east of Kingston on April 27.

According to preliminary reports, the drama began after Sheldon Daley, alias “Junior Biggs”, was fatally shot by three men. An off duty policeman who witnessed Daley’s shooting, began pursuing the get-away vehicle with the three men.

The car later crashed into another vehicle and following the crash, one of the men was found dead on the scene, while another was found unconscious in the vehicle.

In a statement, INDECOM said Frazer and Rhamone will also be charged jointly with seven offences.

Corporal Scott is to be charged separately with two other offences. (CMC)
