A parish judge has given investigators until Thursday to charge or release the husband of Carolyn Davis Campbell, the Bishop Gibson High School teacher who was fatally shot at her home in Manchester, two months ago.
The order was made Tuesday when his attorneys filed a writ before the Manchester Parish Court demanding his release.
Superintendent Wayne Cameron, head of the Manchester Police, says a file is to be sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for a ruling.
Mrs Davis Campbell's husband was taken into custody last Tuesday and questioned in connection with the murder of his wife.
The teacher and her husband were at their home in Melrose Mews on July 10 when a gunman entered.
Mrs Davis Campbell was shot.
Her husband was not injured.
