Tesha Miller this afternoon denied ordering the murder of former Jamaica Urban Transit Company, JUTC Managing Director, Douglas Chambers.
Miller denied the allegation when he delivered an unsworn statement from the prisoners dock.
An unsworn statement is when a defendant gives a statement to the Court responding to allegations without the possibility of being cross examined by Prosecutors.
Miller told the presiding Judge and Jurors that before the current Court proceedings he’s never seen the prosecution’s star witness.
The star witness had told the Court that Miller is the leader of the Spanish Town-based, Klansman Gang.
According to the witness, Miller had ordered that Mr. Chambers be gunned down.
But Tesha Miller told the Home Circuit Court in Downtown Kingston this morning that he did not order the killing of “the JUTC man.”
At the end of his statement, Miller commented – “I am innocent”.
Miller also denied being a gangster and told the Jury that he’s a Welder.
Miller is charged with accessory to murder before and after the fact in connection with the gun slaying of Mr. Chambers.
Allegations are that Miller directed that Mr. Chambers be murdered because the then JUTC Managing Director was not paying extortion money to the Klansman Gang.
