The man charged in connection with killing Manchester policeman, Orville Preddie, has been offered bail but will not be able to take up the offer.

This is because when 31-year-old Steve Larmond appeared in court yesterday, another charge was brought against him.

Larmond, who is from Central Village in St Catherine, was offered bail in the sum of $400,000 on the murder charge but was ordered remanded for a charge under the anti-gang law.

He was charged last month for the murder.

Four other suspects are still on the run.

Constable Preddie was killed on December 18, 2014 while at a bar and grocery shop in Farm, Manchester.

He was reportedly shot in the head after gunmen found his Jamaica Constabulary Force Identification card on his person.
