Attorney-at-law Valerie Neita-Robertson will be making a bail application tomorrow for the policeman charged with the murder of a pregnant woman in Yallahs Square, St Thomas, on September 1.
Following the incident, the director of public prosecutions (DPP) ruled that Corporal Dwayne Smart should be charged.
Smart is to face trial for the murder of 27-year-old Kay-Ann Lamont, who was eight months pregnant when she was fatally shot.
Smart, who is also facing charges of wounding with intent, assault, and illegal possession of a firearm, appeared in the Home Circuit Court yesterday and was remanded until tomorrow.
The DPP entered a voluntary bill of indictment and sent the case for trial.
It is being alleged that Lamont and the policeman got into an altercation after he attempted to arrest her for using indecent language. During the scuffle, the pregnant woman was shot twice in the head. It is also alleged that the policeman shot Lamont's sister in the shoulder.
Attorney-at-law Tom Tavares-Finson is watching proceedings on behalf of the relatives of the deceased.
