Police preparing to question wife of slain constable

By Kimone Witter

Investigators are making arrangements to question the wife of slain Police Constable Damien Blair.

Constable Blair was killed at his home in Somerset, Manchester, on Monday evening.

Senior Superintendent Glenford Miller, acting head of the Area Three Police Headquarters, told Radio Jamaica News that the 31-year-old woman remains hospitalised under police guard.

He said once she is released, she will be questioned by detectives regarding the death of Constable Blair.

The body of the 41-year-old cop was found with bullet wounds outside his house at Desmond McKenzie Close, more commonly known as Guava Walk.

He also had injuries to his face.

His wife, who barricaded herself inside the house, was found with an apparent self-inflicted wound.

She was taken to hospital by the police.

When Radio Jamaica News returned to the community Tuesday morning, scene-of-crime and CIB detectives were processing the scene.

One resident in the farming community said it was well-known that the couple had frequent arguments and fights, which often required police intervention.

Constable Blair's sister, Antonia Sutherland, said the couple had filed for divorce and had also been receiving counselling.
