Three young men, who are jointly charged with the murder of 19 year-old Menelik McClymont, the son of reggae singer, are set to appear in court for the first time tomorrow.       
The case has grabbed headlines since it was first reported over a week ago. The case took a twist this week when the arrests were made and Luciano's family complained that there was a 'mastermind' behind the attack and that that 'mastermind' - who is from an upscale community - was now the prosecution's star witness in the proceedings against the three men. 
However, attorney-at-law Peter Champagnie, who is watching proceedings on behalf of the prosecution's witness, appealed for calm, and less inflammatory rhetoric even while commiserating with the family of the deceased. 

"I am watching proceedings on behalf of the prosecution's witness. I unreservedly extend my sympathies and condolences to the family of Luciano. But it is most unfortunate if what is reportedly said by him to the media is true, I am concerned about the tone and tenor of his statements," attorney-at-law Peter Champagnie said.

"The cops did a thorough investigation, concluded the investigation, made the appropriate decision and determined how they would proceed with the matter. Luciano's comments are cause for concern. It is ambiguous because persons may get the wrong impression and take the law into their own hands. It is in the interest of justice, it is best suited if they allow the courts to deal with the situation and refrain from making statements that are inflammatory and may aggravate the situation," Champagnie said.
The three accused men are Jerome Coombs of Bob Marley Boulevard in Cooreville Gardens, Camanie Shaw of Ambrook Lane, and Nashlyn Anderson, also of Ambrook Lane, St Andrew, were charged with murder.
A distraught Luciano had told the media there was a fourth suspect, who is now believed to be the prosecution's major witness. He believes that even though this young man might not have had a part in the actual stabbing, he should also be charged for his part in the act.
"I would feel better if he was charged. He went for these guys and we can't allow him to get away with this. It is safer for everyone if he is brought to justice because I don't want this to happen to anybody else's child, and I don't want anything to happen to him and people say is me send people to harm him. A lot of people are hurt by this and are thinking of retaliating. I have to be telling people to remain calm because I am not about revenge, I am about justice."
