Lauriston beheading trial put off

Published:Monday | November 17, 2014 | 2:03 PM

The trial of the five men charged with the beheading of a woman and her daughter in Lauriston, St Catherine in July 2011 has been put off.

It should have started this morning, but was put off until March 2015 as there is a murder case in the court room.

The trial was also to begin earlier this year in June.

That was also abandoned because of the availability 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.
