Coke is the youngest brother of former Tivoli Gardens’ don, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

It’s understood Coke returned to the island from the United States on Saturday morning via a commercial flight. He had left Jamaica on March 15.

Lanchester Coke turned himself in at the Elletson Road Police station in East Kingston today in the company of his lawyer, Carolyn Chuck.

In the meantime, Lanchester’s brother, Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke, was today formally charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Christopher ‘Tittyman’ Coke has also been similarly charged. Tittyman is the son of Dudus.

Livity and Tittyman have been charged for the murder of Denham Town gunman, Patrick Davis on March 12 this year.

A statement given to the Police has accused Lanchester Coke of helping Livity in placing Davis’s body into a motor car.
