Man charged with Manchester cop's killing offered bail
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.
