Cops charged with murder faces trial
Corporal Selvin Williams who was charged with the murder of Valbert Salmon in Top Hill, St Elizabeth, three years ago, is to stand trial on February 15.
The date was set on Monday at the completion of a preliminary enquiry.
Williams was offered bail in the sum of $400,000.
Court documents alleged that on December 29, 2012, a team from the St Elizabeth Operational Support unit, led by the accused, was on mobile patrol in Top Hill.
The team encountered two men in the middle of the road fighting.
While attempting to quell the fight, the accused reported that he was attacked with a knife and discharged one round in Salmon's direction. He was shot and later died.
Following an investigation, it was recommended that Williams be charged with murder.
