Attorney-at-law Valerie Neita Robertson is today expected to make a bail application for Corporal Dwayne Smart, the cop charged with the murder of the St Thomas woman who was eight months pregnant.
Smart will be reappearing in the Home Circuit Court where he was remanded on Monday.
In addition to the murder charge, Corporal Smart is charged with wounding with intent, assault, and illegal possession of a firearm.
The policeman has been in custody since September 1 following the killing of 27-year-old Kay-Ann Lamont in Yallahs Square, St Thomas.
It’s reported 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.
She died on the spot.
Corporal Smart then reportedly shot Lamont’s sister in the shoulder.
It’s further reported that he attempted to shoot yet another sister but she escaped after running and hiding.
The policeman, who was taken into custody, was later charged following a ruling by the Director Public Prosecutions.
