Wolfe was the one who called in the emergency after finding Ms Whitehead's body in January this year. He later told police she had mixed alcohol and Valium.
It is alleged that Doherty visited the flat where Ms Whitehead's body was found for a party the night before her death . He has always denied any involvement in the 27-year-old's death.
At the time, he said he was "shocked and saddened" by the tragedy.
