Dancehall star Alkaline was released from police custody on Monday afternoon, following a court order that cops either release or charge the deejay who was being questioned in relation to an ongoing murder investigation.
Alkaline, whose real name is Earlan Bartley, was not charged. He had been in custody since last Thursday after turning himself over to police probing last month’s murder of Rohan Morris in Maverley, St Andrew.
Morris was reportedly shot some 15 times in what has been cited as a gang feud in the community.
Peter Champagnie, the attorney representing Alkaline, made an application for the deejay to be released on Monday morning.
