HEAD UP: Gray said to be recuperating at home.
After spending weeks in a hospital bed due to surgery to remove a pair of bullets from her upper body, 28-year-old radio and television presenter Jody-Ann Gray has been discharged and is at home regaining her strength and her spirits. “I was told that she is out and is at home now,” a source tells TALLAWAH. “She is doing much, much better.”
The men (Wayne Whyte and Safari Farr) charged in relation to the shooting of Gray are to reappear in the Gun Court on Friday, May 25. Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn, has indicated that by that time, she is expected to receive all statements from witnesses and have them served on the defence.
Whyte (for whom Gray is seven months pregnant) and Farr are facing charges of wounding with intent, illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition. The police are yet to release details on a third man who was also held in connection with the incident.
Interestingly, given the high level of publicity surrounding the case, the prosecution had indicated that the matter would be heard in private in the interest of justice. Gray, who was Whyte's co-worker at KOOL 97 FM, was shot and injured as she arrived at her Cedar Grove home in Portmore, St. Catherine, on April 4.
