The preliminary inquiry into the shooting death of Selwyn ‘Blues’ Knight began today before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
Police Constable Everton Randolph Gittens, accused of murdering Knight on March 15 last year, reappeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court where three witnesses testified during the day’s proceedings.
Gittens faces two other charges: namely, that he recklessly engaged in conduct which placed Junior Knight, son of Selwyn Knight, in danger of death or serious bodily harm and, in the second instance, unlawfully wounding him with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to cause him some serious bodily harm.
All of the charges against Gittens, who remains on remand, are indictable and stem from a shooting incident on March 15, 2015. The accused policeman will return to court on March 17 when his matter continues.
Gittens, 44, resides at Lot #1 Dash Gap, Bank Hall, St Michael.
Inspector Eustace Ifill is prosecuting while Angella Mitchell-Gittens is representing the accused.
