The much-anticipated court hearing into the abduction and murder of Trinidad & Tobago schoolteacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves failed to get underway today.
A police investigator told The Gleaner that the case file was still not ready but should be completed in time for the matter to begin tomorrow.
Earlier this week, Sergeant Peter Salkey, the Constabulary Communication Network liaison officer for St James, reported that investigators were working around the clock to get the files ready for today’s sitting of the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court.
Taxi-operator Ivan Taylor, 46, who is of a Westmoreland address, is charged with the abduction and murder.
He operated as a ‘contract taxi-operator’ for Coudray-Greaves and is believed to have been one of the last persons who saw her before she went missing in early June.
Coudray-Greaves, who taught Spanish at Cornwall College between January and April, is the daughter of San Fernando Mayor Marlene Coudray.
Coudray-Greaves’ burnt body was found in a cane field on the outskirts of Montego Bay shortly after she went missing.
At the time she went missing, Coudray-Greaves was in negotiation with the administration Cornwall College to take up another temporary teaching job in September.
