Five to go on trial for 2011 Lauriston beheading today

The five men charged with the beheading of a woman and her daughter in Lauriston, St Catherine, in July 2011 are expected to stand trial today.

The date was set in June after an expected start was abandoned because of the unavailability of courtrooms.

The men on trial for murder are Adrian Campbell, Fabian Smith, Kemar Riley, Rushane Goldson and Sanjay Ducally.

It's alleged that 19-year-old Joeith Lynch and her 49-year-old mother, Charmaine Cover-Rattray, were asleep at their Lauriston home on July 20, 2011 when men kicked off their door, and entered.

The men allegedly murdered the woman and her daughter, cut off their heads and dumped them some distance away from the murder scene.
