Judge praises police and prison officer for work on murder trial


High Court Judge, Justice Iain Morely wants letters of commendation to be sent to a police constable and a prison officer for the work they did in identifying murder suspect, Steve Urlings on the night Albert Browne was murdered.

Police Constable, Jermaine Moore and Prison Officer Makeeda Tweed put their lives in danger to follow a suspect whom witnesses said had just fatally shot Browne.

While trailing him in a mini bus they were able to make a positive identification and this led to Urlings’ arrest a few days later.

The judge has also commended numerous civilian witnesses who took the stand to testify at the murder trial, which culminated with Urlings being sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Albert Browne was shot three times with bullets piercing his face and chest.

The 19-year-old died on the spot in Booby Alley on September 1, 2014.

No clear motive for the shooting was revealed at trial.
