The two men who were charged with the murder of six members of a family of Campbelton Road in Logwood, Hanover in October 2015, have been convicted in the Hanover Circuit Court on Friday, November 30.
Convicted are Mikhail Campbell and Errol Clarke. They have been convicted for:
- Six counts of murder;
- Four counts of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm; and
- One count of Arson
On Thursday, October 8, 2015 about 11:30 p.m., residents reportedly heard explosions and shortly after saw fire coming from a nine-bedroom board dwelling house. The Police were alerted and the Lucea and Negril Fire Departments were summoned. After the cooling down operations, the charred remains of all six persons were seen among the rubble. Four other occupants of the house received injuries and were treated at hospital.
Campbell and Clarke are set for sentencing in the Home Circuit Court on Friday, December 14.
