Wayne Whyte’s lawyer to seek his release
The lawyer representing one of 3 men held in relation to the attempted murder of broadcaster Jody Ann Gray, says he will seek the release of his client tomorrow (April 13).
Christopher Townswend, who is representing Wayne Whyte, says his client was subjected to 2 hours of questioning yesterday.
Mr. Townsend says if the police fail to either charge or release Mr. Whyte by this evening (April 12) he will go to court tomorrow, to seek the release.
The lawyer adds that as far as he is aware, the other 2 men have not retained legal representation.
Whyte and the two other men were arrested on Wednesday April 4, shortly after Ms. Gray was attacked, just as she arrived home in Portmore St. Catherine.
Gray, who is 7 months pregnant, was shot 3 times. She is currently in hospital recuperating, following surgery to remove a bullet from her throat.
Gray and Whyte were both employed to the government owned Kool 97 radio station in Kingston.
