Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – A man who was recently charged with the murder of an ex-police in the parish on Friday morning, April 6, was remanded into custody when he appeared in Court recently.

Lawrence who had no legal representation was ordered to return to court on Friday, April 24.
Reports by the police are that shortly after 12:10 a.m. on the day of the incident, Davis was reportedly sitting in his motorcar outside a bar along Farm Road while having a conversation with a female friend.
Lawrence who is the ex-boyfriend to the female reportedly came to the area and told her that he wanted to speak to her.
