3 soldiers to be charged with killing accountant

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -

Jamaica's public prosecutor says three soldiers will be charged with the May 2010 killing of accountant Keith Clarke.

Clarke was shot at least 22 times inside his home outside Kingston a few days after security forces launched a huge manhunt for fugitive drug kingpin Christopher "Dudus" Coke.

Clarke was the brother of a former government Cabinet minister. His family has said he was with his wife and one of his daughters in a wealthy neighborhood when soldiers stormed into the home.

Prosecutor Paula Llewelyn announced her decision to file charges Tuesday.

The Jamaica Defense Force says it will have no comment on matters before a court. Both the military and police on the Caribbean island have said almost nothing about the case since the killing.
