Former ACP Gauze testifies in trial of man accused of killing family of six in St. Thomas

Former Assistant Commissioner of Police Granville Gauze on Tuesday testified that Michael McLean took investigators to a shallow grave in St. Mary where he had buried one of the four children he is accused of killing twelve years ago.
 
Mr. Gauze was giving testimony before the Home Circuit Court.
 
McLean is on trial for killing a family of six in February 2006.
 
During his testimony, Mr. Gauze told the jury that on March 2, 2006, McLean was giving a caution statement to investigators at the CIB Headquarters when he halted the proceedings.
 
He said McLean's attorney, Anthony Pearson, was present.
 
McLean reportedly said he wanted to take them to the location where he buried six year old Jhaid McCool in Rosemont, St. Mary.
 
He said they drove in a convoy to St. Mary where McLean took them to the spot where the child's body was found.
 
He said the decomposed body was found in a shallow grave.
 
Mr. Gauze said McLean's attorney witnessed the activities.
 
The retired cop further testified that McLean was not beaten, threatened or coerced to take them to the crime scene.
