The matter involving the killing of two US missionaries has been transferred from St Mary to the Home Circuit Court for mention on April 19, 2017 for a trial date to be set.

The two missionaries, 48-year-old Randy Hentzel and 53-year-old Harold Nichols, went missing on April 30 last year after leaving home in Tower Isle, destined for Albion Mountain.

Their bodies were later discovered in bushes in Wentworth, near Galina in the parish.

Police have charged Dwight Henry and Andre Thomas for the murders.

Henry escaped police custody at the Port Maria hospital on January 3 where he had been taken for medical attention.

He was recaptured after almost a month on the run.
