'Shab Don' murder trial set for November 20
Popular music producer Linval 'Shab Don' Thompson Jr and his co-accused Tajay Clark are to return to the St James Circuit Court on November 20 for the start of a triple murder trial they are implicated in.
The accused men are charged for the shooting deaths of 27-year-old Chadwell Frazer, otherwise called 'Bomb Brain'; 24-year-old Chamario 'Chippy' Calvin; and 26-year-old Toniann 'Too Fly' Reid.
The men were shot dead at a birthday party on Marl Road in Rose Heights on May 25.
Thompson was arrested by police in June during a targeted operation in the St Catherine South Police Division following preliminary investigations into several incidents.
The trial date was scheduled on Thursday when the accused appeared in court for a plea and case management hearing. They were subsequently remanded.
Thompson is also before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on a bribery charge.
In that case, he is accused of offering $2 million to a policeman to remove an illegal firearm from his motorcar before it was searched by the police.
Thompson, who was charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition in relation to the illegal weapon, was however freed of the gun charges in April.
