Murder Trial Witness Says Another Man Shot Victim

A witness in the murder trial involving alleged killer Stephen ‘Die’ Stubbs said she saw another man, not on trial, shoot the murder victim.

Stenographer Laura Farmer read a transcript of Shandiola Colebrooke’s 2007 testimony in the murder trial involving Stubbs, Clinton Evans and Andrew Davis.

Ms. Colebrooke took the stand that February 21st before presiding justice John Isaacs to testify that she saw another man fire a black gun, which she believed resulted in the death of Police Constable Jimmy Ambrose on March 29, 1999 outside the former Club Rock.

Defense attorney Ramona Farquharson-Seymour representing Evans called Mrs. Farmer to the stand to read the transcript of Ms. Colebrooke as she is believed to be out of the country and could not be reached.

According to the transcript the witness said she and her sisters were in the club on the night in question when a fight broke out and police escorted two men, particularly one by the name of ‘Eric’ out of the club.

She said when she got outside, she saw a group of men ganging a man, whom she identified to be one of the accused Clinton Evans, after which he limped off.

The witness said she then saw Eric fire three or four shots from a black gun.

A few weeks ago, an witnessed testified that he witnessed Evans dispose of a gun in a pile of sand near a building under construction.

Another witness, inspector Deborah McClure said on the morning Evans was arrested, she was tasked with preparing the detention report.

She said he was arrested for firearm possession and attempted murder, but no one told her that a gun was brought in with him, which is why it was not written on the report.

Attorneys are expected to give their closing arguments today.

The matter continues before Justice Roy Jones.
