Detectives from Kingston East Police Division have charged three men for the August 27 murder of 46-year-old hospital worker Kevin Llewellyn and the wounding of his son at their home on Sligo Street, Kingston 16.

The accused are 28-year-old Romario Pottinger who is otherwise called ‘Brown Man’, 23-year-old Rhajay Green otherwise called ‘Suckoo’, and 23-year-old Stephen Myers who is also known as ‘Evil Boss’.

The three, who are from Kingston 16, are charged with murder, shooting with intent, and illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.
