The police last evening reported that they have detained a man in the murder of 54-year-old police Corporal Judith Williams.
“The man is being questioned in the presence of his attorney,” a police officer confirmed yesterday to the Jamaica Observer on condition of anonymity.
Williams, who was assigned to the police commissioner’s office, was shot eight times by two hoodlums as she made her way to work last Thursday morning. She succumbed to her injuries at hospital on Friday.
Police sources said they believe Williams’ murder was a contract killing. However, they were not yet sure about the motive.
A source close to the case said the cop’s murder could be linked to a court case.
