The two policemen on trial for the abduction and murder of two men from Washington Boulevard, in St. Andrew ten years ago, will know next Monday whether they’ll walk free.

Corporal Louis Lynch and Constable Paul Edwards were ordered to face a re-trial last January after a jury failed to return a verdict.

Edwards, was convicted on a split verdict but was discharged by the judge.

They’ve denied killing the men.

Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn, says there’re financial considerations that have to be taken into account regarding whether the prosecution will remount a case.

DPP Paula Llewellyn, speaking this afternoon with Nationwide News.

A third policeman who was on trial, Assistant Superintendent Victor Barrett, was acquitted.

When the matter came up in court today, the prosecution asked that it be adjourned until next week when a determination will be made about whether the Crown will proceed with the case.

The policemen had their bail extended.

The Crown is alleging that 20-year-old Kemar Walters, of Kitson Town, St Catherine and 45-year-old Oliver Duncan, of Olympic Gardens, Kingston 11 were abducted from Washington Plaza, along Washington Boulevard on December 23, 2004.

Walters and Duncan were allegedly shot to death after being taken from the plaza.

Their bodies have not been found.
