Detectives have until Friday, June 3 to charge or release the cop detained on suspicion of murdering his colleague Corporal Judith Williams, the court ruled this week. 


Senior Kingston and St Andrew Judge Judith Pusey made the ruling on Tuesday following an application by attorney Peter Champagnie for the suspect to be released if he isn’t charged.


The suspect was taken into custody shortly after Williams’ murder on April 28.


The 54-year-old Williams was shot six times, while at a bus stop near her home at McKintyre Villa (otherwise known as Dunkirk), in Kingston.


The cop was held shortly after. A civilian has also been held in connection with the murder.


The cop is also being probed for the murder of another colleague — Sergeant Courtney Simpson, who was attached to the Protective Services Division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.


Simpson, who was the bodyguard of then state minister Julian Robinson, was shot multiple times at his gate in Harbour View, St Andrew, on the night of April 8, 2013, by men travelling in a white motor vehicle.
