Bail application will also be made for Coleman's co-accused, constables Leroy Curtis and Denrick Thomas.

The date for the bail hearing was scheduled last week Tuesday when the trio appeared in court and were remanded.

Henry Coleman, a businesswoman of Begonia Drive, was shot dead while driving in Mandeville.

Investigators believe that her killers were paid $1 million to commit the act.

It was also revealed that Coleman was arrested and charged with assaulting his wife and the two had been before the Mandeville Resident Magistrate's Court, but the case was eventually dropped in July 2015.
