Two await sentencing for Park Lane couple's murder

Two men are to be sentenced next month for the murder of a couple at Park Lane, off Red Hills Road, St Andrew, in July 2011.The police theorised that it was a political killing as the now deceased male had joined another party.

The men are Rohan 'Stone' Reid from McDonald Lane, Kingston 13, and Damion 'Bruno' Walker from Bunyan Crescent, Kingston 20.

The Crown, represented by Acting Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Sharon Millwood-Moore, and Crown Counsel David McLennon, led evidence that on July 11, the men shot and killed Clive Baker and his common-law wife Camille Daley.

When the men invaded the premises Baker ran on top of the roof, but the men fired several shots killing him. Daley ran to hide under a bed with her seven-month-old baby, but the men barged into the house and shot her. The baby was also shot.

After the men left the houee they went back inside and Walker pointed out that the woman was not dead and Reid shot her two more times.

Evidence was given by a relative who knew the men before. The witness said the men were friends of Baker and they used to visit the home.

Reid gave an unsworn statement saying he did not know the deceased while Walker said he did not have problem with anyone.

A Home Circuit Court jury found them guilty and Justice Bertam Morrison put off sentencing until March 19.
