KINGSTON, Jamaica — Broadcaster Wayne Whyte and his co-accused Safari Farr were on Monday remanded into police custody when they appeared in the High Court Division of the Gun Court in relation to the shooting of Whyte's Kool FM colleague Jody-Ann Gray.

The matter was adjourned to Thursday for Gray's outstanding medical certificate to be made available.

Both Whyte and Farr are charged with wounding with intent and illegal possession of a firearm.

They were among three persons detained shortly after Gray was shot twice at her gate in Cedar Grove, Portmore, St Catherine, in early April.

Gray, who at the time was pregnant, was attacked and shot once in the face and twice in the shoulder just as she drove up to her gate.

She was rushed to hospital where she underwent emergency surgery to remove a bullet.
