A MAN arraigned in court on a murder charge claimed that the brutality he suffered at the hands of police caused him to urinate blood.

Tino Adderley, who appeared before Magistrate Guilimina Archer of  Magistrates Court #10 on a charge of murder, made the revelation after his attorney, Bernard Ferguson, made complaints of police brutality against his client.

“I was urinatinb blood for two to three days” the murder accused said, adding that “they make me sign a paper I didn’t know what it was.”

Adderley is alleged to be the culprit behind the April 14, fatally Kemp Road shooting death of Ulrick Marshall who died on the scene in  where the shooting took place.

Adderley said he understood the charge against him when asked by the Magistrate who also told him that a Voluntary Bill  of Indictment would be served to him on November 13, which would forward his case to the Supreme Court for trial.

He would be in the custody of the prison where he was remanded to.

When Adderley made claims of the abuse, he also said that he had marks over his body, more so his feet, to prove the claims.

Magistrate Bethel ordered that the accused be taken to see a physician for examination and treatment.

Meanwhile, another man was arraigned before Magistrate Archer in connection with a double murder that occurred last September.

Giovanni Roberts faced two counts of abetment to murder where it is claimed that he aided and abetted in the murders of Jamacio Jones and Clayton Smith on September 15, 2011.

Jones and Smith were found in a white Maxima in the middle of the road in Ridgeland Park with gun shot wounds. Smith, who was shot in the back of the head, died at the scene while Jones died of his injuries in hospital two days later.

Roberts was not allowed to enter a plea to the charge due to the nature of the offence. He was remanded to prison until the completion of trial in Supreme Court.

He returns to the lower court on November 14 to be served with a VBI.

He has retained Wayne Munroe and Roberto Reckley to defend him,.
