Constable Collis ‘Chucky’ Brown has been found guilty of three counts of murder, on count each of conspiracy to murder and wounding with intent
A six-member jury returned the guilty verdict Thursday afternoon, November 15, 2018 in the trial of the policeman said to have been part of an unofficial death squad in the police force.
The jury got the case just before noon Thursday after days of summing up by Justice Vivene Hall in the Home Circuit Court, after a trial that started October 3, 2018.
Brown is charged in connection with the murder of three men, all in Clarendon, between 2009 and 2012.
Those killed are Damoy ‘Gutty’ Dawkins, in January 10, 2009 and Dwayne ‘Murderous’ Douglas and Andrew ‘Sugar’ Fearon on December 13, 2012.
Brown was facing three counts of murder, one count of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of wounding with intent. This after lengthy police investigations and statements by the cop to INDECOM.
Eleven witnesses appeared for the prosecution and two character witnesses from the defence taking the stand.
Nine witness statements were also adduced into evidence.
Last year March, Brown was acquitted of murder and wounding charges in relation to a shooting in May Pen, Clarendon.
