Another man has been charged in connection with the July murder of Police Constable Jermaine Brown in Johnson Pen, Spanish Town, in St Catherine.

A release from the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit says 29-year-old Ramone Powell, otherwise called 'Trigger', a tiler, of Johnson Pen road in the parish, was charged with murder on Thursday by detectives assigned to the Major Investigations Division.

The charge was laid after he was pointed out in an identification parade.

Powell's alleged accomplice, 19-year-old Giovanni Findlay, otherwise called 'Joe', of Kitson Town, St Catherine, was charged on August 5.

The police say their court dates are being finalised.

The police say Brown went to Johnson Pen in his private motor car to conduct personal business when he was pounced upon by unknown assailants who shot him multiple times inside his car.

He was attached to the Spanish Town Police Station.
