KINGSTON, Jamaica — The police corporals linked to the controversial shooting in Chedwin Park in Spanish Town, St Catherine last month were remanded when they appeared in the Home Circuit Court today.

The incident left two civilians and a policeman dead.

Ramone Scott and Kirk Fraser who are charged with murder, manslaughter, shooting with intent, three counts each of illegal possession of firearms and illegal possession of ammunition are scheduled to return to court on July 2.

Both officers were arrested following the shooting death of Sheldon "Junior Biggs" Daley, and the road death of Kevron Burrell.

Corporal Rohan Williams was also killed during a road accident.

Corporal Scott, Corporal Williams and Corporal Frazer, believed to be rogue cops, were reportedly being chased by an off duty cop following the fatal shooting of Daley at a dance in Chedwin Park, when they reportedly crashed into another vehicle at the intersection of Job Lane and Brunswick Avenue, killing Burrell.

Frazer fled the scene following the crash, while Williams was found dead inside the vehicle, and Scott was taken into custody.

However, Frazer later surrendered to police in the presence of his attorney, Queen Counsel, Valerie Neita Robertson.

Minutes ago when the matter was mentioned, Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Paula Llewelyn served the defence lawyers with copies of the statement while disclosing that copies of the post mortems, forensic report, ballistic report, a statement from a police superintendent and a report from the Communications Forensic and Cybercrimes Division are outstanding.

According to the DPP, those documents will be ready in a months' time.
