The three soldiers implicated in the May 2010 murder of businessman Keith Clarke are no longer in confinement.
Their bail conditions were varied when they appeared in the Home Circuit Court today.
Their attorneys, Howard Hamilton and Linton Gordon, told the court that the soldiers were having difficulty attending to their personal business.
The accused: lance corporals Greg Tinglin and Odel Buckley and private Arnold Henry, were each granted bail in the sum of the sum of $2 million dollars with sureties when they first appeared in court in July.
But they were confined to the Jamaica Defence Force compound.
Last month an application was made for a variation of their bail and they were allowed to go home on weekends.
Today, the Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn did not oppose the application for the confinement order to be lifted.
In varying the bail conditions, Justice Christine McDonald ordered the soldiers to report to the Cross Roads police station between 6 a.m and 7 p.m from Monday to Friday.
They are to return to court on December 7.
Clarke was fatally shot at his home in East Kirkland Heights, St Andrew during a search for then fugitive Christopher ĎDudusí Coke.
Clarke was shot 21 times, and itís reported that 16 of those shots were to the back of the body.
