Justice Georgiana Fraser denied a no-case submission by Tesha Miller's attorneys, ruling that the reputed gang leader has a case to answer.

Bert Samuels, the attorney for Miller, who is accused of ordering the 2008 murder of then chairman of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company, Douglas Chambers, had made submissions to have the case thrown out.

Samuels argued that the prosecution's sole witness was not credible because of inconsistencies between his statement to the police and testimony in court. However, the prosecution said that the witness, who cannot be named because of a court order, gave cogent and rational reasons for his statements.

In handing down the ruling, Fraser said that the issues raised by Samuels were matters of fact on which the jury could decide. Miller is on trial at the Home Circuit Court in downtown Kingston, answering to charges of accessory before and after the fact to Chambers' murder.
