The police constable charged with the murder of his girlfriend has been denied bail.
Detective Constable Lincoln McKoy appeared in the Port Antonio Resident Magistrate’s court this morning.
Resident Magistrate Marjorie Moisten raised concern about the fact that McKoy had reportedly attempted to take his life.
She said she feared he might commit suicide if he is released.
Detective Constable McKoy is accused of killing his girlfriend, 23-year-old Jessica King, before shooting and injuring himself on August 14 at the Errol Flynn Marina in Portland.
McKoy is being represented by attorneys-at-Law Christopher Townsend and Nicholas Chambers.
He is to return to court on September 27.
