February 08, 2017

Police investigators say they have been assured that popular Jamaican entertainer Alkaline will turn himself tomorrow.

Head of the Police Area Four, Assistant Commissioner Devon Watkis says the entertainer gave the assurance through his legal representatives.

On Tuesday, the Criminal Investigation Branch of the Jamaica Constabulary Force released a statement saying detectives wanted to question Alkaline in connection with the killing of Rohan Morris in Marverly, St Andrew last month.

The entertainer, whose given name is Earlan Bartley, was also asked to turn himself in to the Police Area Four headquarters in Vineyard Town, St Andrew by 5 o’clock today.

Despite the missed deadline, Watkis said the police are satisfied that good sense has prevailed and that Alkaline has agreed to turn himself in.

He declined to comment on whether the entertainer was a witness or a suspect.
