Kay is a villain character in the 2012 film Dredd. He is one of Ma-Ma's main enforcers and a supplier of the new drug they are manufacturing known as Slo-Mo.

He was portrayed by Wood Harris.


Kay was taken custody by Judge Dredd and Judge Cassandra Anderson  during a drugs bust. It is quickly discovered by Judge Anderson via her telepathy that he had murdered 3 rival dealers on Ma-Ma's orders by skinning them alive and throwing them over the balcony into the Peach Trees atrium. When it is discovered by Ma-Ma that the Judges have caught him and intend to interrogate him, she orders the block sealed and sends the rest of her clan to kill the two judges in an attempt to prevent Kay from revealing details of her drug operation under interrogation.

He is forced to accompany the two Judges as they fight their way to the top of the block with the intention of defeating Ma-Ma. After Ma-Ma recklessly attempts to wipe the judges out in a heavy weapons attack that practically demolishes an entire level of the building, Dredd loses his patience and attempts to beat a confession from Kay in order to find out what Ma-Ma is so desperate to hide. He is unsucessful, however, with Kay being more afraid of Ma-Ma than he is of the judges. Anderson then goes into his mind and attempts to get the information this way instead where Kay attempts to kill and rape her, although this is unsuccessful. Anderson then puts him through further intense mental anguish, quickly and successfully discovering the details of Ma-Ma's drug operation; including its supply and distribution facilities which are based in the Peach Trees block.

Kay eventually manages to escape when the two judges are confronted by two armed youths under orders from Ma-Ma clan, he uses the distraction as an opportunity to abduct Anderson and escape in a nearby elevator. Upon reaching Ma-Ma's apartment on the 200th floor, he contemplates torturing Anderson but is stopped by Ma-Ma; who after berating him for his incompetence orders him to kill her quickly with gunshots to the head and chest instead in order to make her death look like a routine drugs bust gone wrong, thus luring any subsequent investigating Judges away from the clan's main operation.

Anderson is then taken to an execution room where Kay prepares to murder her using her own Lawgiver. unknown to Kay however, her weapon was equipped with an ID chip which activates as he attempts to fire the gun, causing the gun to explode and obliterate his arm up to the elbow. Anderson then reacts by swiftly roundhouse kicking him in the face, either breaking his neck or knocking him to the ground unconcious where he presumably bleeds to death.
