Judge to begin summation Friday in "Chucky" Brown murder trial

Supreme Court judge Viviene Harris is to begin her summation on Friday at the murder trial of Police Constable Collis Chucky Brown.
 
This means that the jury will get the case early next week.
 
During final arguments Thursday afternoon, defence attorney Norman Godfrey told the jury that Constable Brown was not seeking favours or their sympathy.
 
He insisted Constable Brown must be freed as the prosecutors have failed to prove the three counts of murder, conspiracy to murder and wounding with intent as set out in the indictment.
 
Mr. Godfrey urged the jury to reject the testimonies of the witnesses put forward by prosecutors from the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).
 
Constable Brown, who is accused of being a member of a Clarendon police death squad is on trial for the murder of Demoy Gutty Dawkins, Dwayne Douglas and Andrew Fearon.
 
Prosecutors say the men were killed by Constable Brown and members of the death squad between 2009 and 2012.
