Police Detective, Corporal Derwin Eastman along with his Police colleague, Jemison Williams, were today further remanded to jail over the murder of businessman Godfrey Scipio aka “Saga”.
The move came even as the Attorneys for the two policemen pleaded with the Court to take the safety of the men into consideration.
Attorney, Dexter Todd today requested that the statements in the matter be released to the court since they will be approaching the High Court for bail.
The request was however, denied by the Magistrate and the officers were further remanded until December 22, 2017.
The businessman was shot dead on the night of October 12, 2017 as he left a Kitty hotel in the company of a lady friend.
A former robbery convict was held and charged for the murder initially.
However, the two policemen were held and charged after the man reportedly told investigators that the two cops had provided him with the weapon to carry out the murder. The Policemen have declared their innocence.
