Attorney-at-Law Churchill Neita has taken the police to task for not being thorough in their investigations.

Neita represents Sean Coffie and Shevena Allen in a case of shooting and conspiracy before the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court.

The lawyer chided the police after he was informed telephone data was not ready, despite being told it would have been.

"The police had specifically said it would've been ready today. Yet, still, nothing and my clients continue to languish," Neita said.

Meanwhile, it was revealed that the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has expressed an interest to prosecute the matter.

Both accused were remanded until January 21 by which time the data should be ready.

Allegations are that in March last year the complainant was shot and injured by a gunman.

An investigation was launched Allen was held. Coffie, the husband of complainant, was pointed out as the man who paid for the hit.

Both were charged with shooting with intent, robbery and conspiracy.

The men are also being defended by attorneys-at-law Zavia Mayne and Patrick Peterkin.
