Police investigators have revealed that the constable being held in connection with the murder of Corporal Judith Williams is to face a series of identification parades.

This was disclosed in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court this morning where the Corporal was scheduled to appear on an assault charge.

The disclosure came after the constable's attorney made a habeas corpus application to have him released from custody.

The attorney told the court that the constable was placed on an identification parade yesterday and was not pointed out by the witness.

According to the attorney, the constable was also questioned by investigators, but has still not been charged with any offence.

Senior Parish Judge Judith Pusey, however, postponed the habeas corpus hearing until next week Friday.

Pusey said she was giving investigators one more week to "sort out" their case.

Corporal Williams was shot several times on the morning of April 28, moments after she left her east Kingston home for work.

Last week the police, through its Corporate Communications Unit, revealed that the Constable was one of two persons taken into custody in connection with her death.
