Accused cop back in court
The preliminary inquiry into the death of Selwyn ‘Blues’ Knight, which began on March 1, continued today before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
Forty-four-year-old Everton Randolph Gittens, a police constable, of Lot #1 Dash Gap, Bank Hall, St Michael, reappeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court this afternoon charged with murdering Knight last March 15. He remains on remand at HMP Dodds.
The accused cop also faces two other charges – that he recklessly engaged in conduct which placed Junior Knight, son of the deceased, in danger of death or serious bodily harm and one count of unlawfully wounding him with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to cause him some serious bodily harm.
The indictable charges stem from an incident on March 15 last year.
Inspector Eustace Ifill is prosecuting while Angella Mitchell-Gittens is representing the accused.
