INDECOM probing alleged assault of Clarendon massacre accused in custody

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) has launched a probe into allegations that the man accused of killing a Clarendon mother and her four children was assaulted while in police custody

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) has launched a probe into allegations that the man accused of killing a Clarendon mother and her four children was assaulted while in police custody.

The oversight body says it was prompted by media reports of Rushane Barnett reportedly raising the allegation during his first court appearance on Tuesday before the Home Circuit Court.
