Lunn Murder: Charges Amended

Nurse Lunn was killed on July 7, 2001 at Princess Margaret Hospital as she was tending to the now missing witness.

Charges against two men implicated in the murder of Nurse Joan Lunn have been amended to include conspiracy to murder Anthony Saunders, whom she was tending at the time.

Crown Prosecutor Francis Cumberbatch and defence attorney Langton Hilton are expected to address the jury on the merits of their cases today.

The presiding justice in the trial is expected to summarize the case and direct the jury in Supreme Court No. 6 Wednesday.

Nurse Lunn was killed on July 7, 2001 in the Private Surgical Ward of the Princess Margaret Hospital as she was tending to Mr Saunders, who did not testify as he has yet to be located.

Justice Anita Allen told jurors that due to the length of the trial and the amount of evidence presented, she would need more time to review, before she directs the jury.

The new charges read to the defendants were as follows: "That you Kendon Brown are charged with conspiracy to commit murder. It is alleged that you on Saturday July 7, 2001 conspired with Monte Thompson to kill Anthony Saunders."

And, "That you Monte Thompson are charged with conspiracy to commit murder. That you on Saturday July 7, 2001 conspired with Kendon Brown to kill Anthony Saunders."

In the same court, a jury was empaneled in the trial of Ricardo Lockhart, 25, of Her Majesty's Prison.

Lockhart pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and attempted murder. It was alleged that on July 14, 1999 while at Club Rock, Lockhart killed Ronald Pratt, 22.

On the same date and place, it was further alleged, Lockhart attempted to kill Sharmeka Lightfoot, age unknown.
