Dancehall artiste, ‘Munga Honorebel’, who’s charged with murder remains in custody.

He’s to return to court on Friday. His lawyer, Christopher Townsend, began making an application for bail yesterday in the Kingston and St. Andrew parish court. But it was only heard in part.

Mr. Townsend says he’s tried to prove to the court that his client was willing to surrender to the police.
