Morris who recently charge his statement in Court was labeled as a hostile witness after he indicated to the court that he did not give the police such a statement against the brothers.
Upon his appearance in court on Wednesday, the prosecution told the presiding Judge Sandria Wong-Small that they had not yet reviewed the case file against Morris.

St James, who were facing charges of murder and shooting with intent.
Both brothers who are in their early twenties, appeared in court last week and were both set free after the witness changed his statement in the middle of the trial.
The judge then ordered that a not guilty plea be made against the siblings and that the murder charges against them be dropped.
The Walters brothers were taken into custody and charged in connection with a shooting which occurred at a Service Station, in Sun Valley Road, St James, in September of 2017, during what time one man was murdered and two other people shot and injured.
Investigations were carried out, and the brothers arrested after they were identified to be, two of three
men caught on camera carrying out the hideous act.
The brothers were then arrested and charged, following a series of Identification Parades.
