Broadcaster Wayne W Whyte denied bail
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
Former disc jockey and radio personality Wayne W. Whyte was denied bail yesterday when he appeared before the Gun Court.
Mr. Whyte who has been in custody for the past six months, is awaiting trial for attempted murder following the gun attack against his co-worker, Jody Ann Gray, in April.
In applying for bail his, defence attorney Christopher Townsend told presiding judge, Mr Justice Bryan Sykes, that his client was a fit candidate for bail. He argued that Mr. Whyte was not a flight risk and would turn up for his trial if released on bond.
However, Justice Sykes said he was concerned about the safety of the victim and denied him bail. A second accused in the case, Safari Farr, was also denied bail.
Whyte and Farr are facing charges of wounding with intent, illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition, after Ms Gray was shot as she arrived home in Cedar Grove Portmore on April 4.
