Marvia Patterson, the Trelawny woman who reportedly killed four-year-old Natasha Brown in the community of Duanvale on May 28, will be brought back to the Clark's Town Resident Magistrate's Court on November 4.
Patterson, 42, who confessed to beheading Natasha and then dumping the child's remains into a sinkhole, was remanded in police custody after her appearance in court yesterday, when it was revealed that her psychiatric report had not been completed.
Attorney-at-law Winston Douglas, who represented Patterson, raised concern over a preliminary psychiatric report that was submitted before the court.
"Your Honour will notice (on the report) that it says 'to be followed by a full psychological evaluation'. When is this supposed to be?" Douglas asked Resident Magistrate Icoline Reid.
"It has not yet been done; this is an initial report, after which a full report will be compiled. The expert needs to see her again to prepare that," Reid replied.
Patterson, who has been in custody since her arrest, has been denied bail since her initial court appearance on August 2, due to concerns for her safety.
