Alejandre Green, the St James man who is charged with the 2013 murder of his girlfriend and their infant son, had his bail extended to March 11, when he appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Green is charged in connection with the deaths of 20-year-old Melissa Evans, and the couple's four-year-old son, Jeliana Green.

Their bodies were found near a National Water Commission pump just outside Montego Bay, on December 28, 2013.

Evans and young Jeliana had been reported missing on December 27, 2013, after they had gone to purchase ice cream and did not return.

Evans' body was found the following day with the throat slashed and the head partially severed, while the child's body was found floating in a tank nearby.

Yesterday, clerk of the court, Natalie Malcolm, told presiding magistrate, Carolyn Tie, that one set of forensic records was outstanding from the prosecution's case-file.

The matter was then rescheduled to March 11.
