THE two men listed by the St Andrew North Police Division as persons of interest into Sunday's murder of retired Senior Superintendent of Police Anthony 'Tony' Hewitt have turned themselves in.

Jermaine 'Duppy Bat' Smith and Richard 'Red Head' Francis were accompanied to the Constant Spring Police Station last evening by attorney Chris Tavares-Finson, who is also representing McLeod.

A third man also turned himself in to the police after being told that he was wanted for questioning.

"We are prepared to co-operate fully with the police," Tavares-Finson told the Jamaica Observer.

The attorney said that he is waiting to hear from the police whether there will be an identification parade or a question-and-answer session.

The police said that both men reside at Donmair Avenue addresses in Kingston 19 where Hewitt was shot.
