Dancehall artist Alkaline was released from police custody on Monday, February 13.
Hype Life Magazine understands that the “Badness It Name” deejay was released without criminal offence charge after a day of interrogation and five days in lock-up.
Alkaline, whose real name is Earlan Bartley, 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.
According to reports, Peter Champagnie, the attorney representing Alkaline, made an application for the deejay to be released on Monday morning.
A judge ordered that cops either release or charge the Alkaline who was being questioned in relation to the ongoing murder investigation.
Since his release, the Jamaican-born artist has been mysteriously silent on the subject of spending several nights in lock-up with being charged.
Efforts to get a comment from Alkaline prove futile.
Alkaline’s management has yet to release any formal statement regarding the matter.
