ATTORNEY Sean Kinghorn and his two co-accused, who police say created an illegal will for a woman, are expected to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's court today.

The 37-year-old accused of St Johns Heights in St Catherine is jointly charged with his secretary Ruth Spencer, 26, of Runaway Bay in St Ann and Linton Campbell, 64, farmer of St Catherine with forgery and conspiracy to defraud.

When they appeared before Magistrate Georgianna Fraser on Tuesday, all three denied the charges, but the case was postponed in order for disclosure of the statements to be made to the defence.

Kinghorn's attorney, Danielle Archer, also asked for disclosure of the qualification of the handwriting expert that the prosecution has hired to examine the will.

The charges were laid after a family member of a retired nurse reportedly filed a complaint, claiming that a 2008 will that the nurse left in Campbell's name, and which was witnessed by Kinghorn and Spencer, was forged.
