Earlier today, Peter Champagnie, Alkaline’s Attorney filed a habeas corpus for his release.
According to The STAR Police Superintendent Meverald Smith, who appeared on behalf of the police, objected to the application for Alkaline to be released. Smith said that investigators asked Alkaline 100 questions and he responded only by saying “I am innocent of these charges”.
Bartley reported to investigators last Thursday after he was listed as wanted for questioning in relation to the January 13 murder of Rohan Morris in Maverley, St Andrew.
He was detained that evening following a session of question and answer and remained in police custody until about 3:15 this afternoon when he was freed.
