The trial of the three policemen charged with the murder of two men who were abducted from a plaza in 2004 was today adjourned early for a second straight day because of the absence of witnesses.
After three witnesses took the stand this morning, prosecutor Kerri-Ann Kemble told the court that she intended to call two more in the afternoon.
However in the afternoon she had to ask for an early adjournment after learning that one of the two witnesses has died.
It was reported that the witness died in May from natural causes but the prosecutors only learnt of her death today.
Yesterday, there was also an early adjournment because of the absence of witnesses.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Victor Barrett and Constables Paul Edwards and Louie Lynch are on trial in the Home Circuit Court for the double murder.
They were arrested and charged in June 2009 for the murder of 20-year-old Kemar Walters and 28-year-old Oliver Duncan.
The Crown is alleging that the men were abducted by policemen from a plaza on Washington Boulevard, St Andrew, on December 23, 2004 and have not been seen since.
