The case against the two men charged with the murder of 15-year-old schoolgirl Shineka Gray, has been sent to the St James Circuit Court for a committal hearing in January.

The case against Gregory Roberts and Mario Morrison, was moved following a hearing in the St James Parish Court on Tuesday.

Both accused were remanded.

Gray, who was a resident of Mount Salem in St James and a Grade 10 student at the Green Pond High School in the parish, was found dead in bushes in the Irwin community on February 1.

This was three days after she went missing while returning from the funeral of a schoolmate.

Her body had multiple stab wounds.

Following investigations by the police, Roberts and Morrison were taken into custody and subsequently charged with the schoolgirl’s murder.
