KINGSTON, Jamaica — The jury began deliberations Wednesday in the Omar Collymore murder trial where he, along with three co-accused, are before the court for the double murder of his wife, Simone Campbell-Collymore and taxi operator Winston Walters.

A verdict is expected before 4:00 pm.

Campbell-Collymore and Walters were shot dead on January 2, 2018, by two gunmen outside the gates of the Forest Ridge apartment complex in Red Hills, St Andrew, where Campbell-Collymore lived with her husband Omar.

They were shot by two men who traveled on motorcycles.

Omar’s co-accused are Shaquilla Edwards, Michael Adams and Dwayne Pink.

It is alleged that Collymore contracted Adams to have Campbell-Collymore murdered so he could claim life insurance benefits from policies that belonged to his wife worth $100 million.

Moments after the deliberations began, the family members of Campbell-Collymore were seen huddled in a corner, deep in prayer.

The prayer session was led by Campbell-Collymore’s mother.

In the prayer, she claimed victory in Jesus’ name saying, “Not one of them shall go free. Lord, I tell you thank you.”
