KINGSTON, Jamaica — Broadcaster Wayne Whyte and his co-accused Safari Farr are to return to court on November 1 for plea and case management regarding the shooting of Whyte's Kool FM colleague Jody-Ann Gray.
The date was set when both men appeared in the High Court Division of the Gun Court today.
An outstanding statement from the police has been handed in and the court was told that the medical certificate in relation to the victim will be submitted today.
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. She later gave birth to a healthy baby.
