The first of the death squad murder trials was adjourned early today to hear legal submissions by lead Prosecutor, Annmarie Fuertado Richards.

Presiding Judge Jennifer Straw adjourned court just before midday.

She instructed the seven-member jury to return on Monday. The legal submissions are being heard in-camera.

Meanwhile, seven witnesses have testified so far including the main witness. The prosecution says 18 witnesses will take the witness box throughout the trial.

Two constables Collis ‘Chucky’ Brown and Rohan Morrison are the accused on trial in the Home Circuit Court in downtown, Kingston.

Both men are accused of murder and wounding with intent in relation to a February 2010 incident in which a 20-year-old man, Fabian Dinnal, was shot and killed and another man injured.

Brown is facing four counts of murder. He’s been denied bail several times.

The two constables are alleging that Dinnal was killed and the main witness shot when gunmen opened fired on the police.

However, the main witness has refuted the account given by the police.

The witness says both he and Dinnal were shot in cold blood. Both Constables were charged by INDECOM in 2010.
