The prosecution yesterday opened its case against a man accused of abetment to murder.
Richard Charlton, 24, was initially accused of the January 22, 2017 murder of Anthony Mather Jr., who was otherwise known as Q, at Kemp Road, but the charge was amended to abetment to murder.
Mather, a father of two, was fatally shot outside his home.
Charlton, who is in custody, has denied the charge at his arraignment before Justice Carolita Bethell.
Prosecutor Denard Brown said the Crown will lead evidence to show that Mather was killed on the direction of Charlton.
He said the prosecution will call police witnesses who investigated the murder and eventually arrested and charged Charlton in addition to the forensic pathologist.
The Crown will call its first witness today.
Sonia Timothy appears for Charlton.
