The man accused of the 2014 murder of eight-year-old schoolgirl, Celeena Headman, has again been denied bail.

The accused, 21-year-old Tristan Shannon, appeared in the Yallahs Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Shannon was ordered to return to court on February 20.

He is accused of killing the eight-year-old White Hall Primary School student after she was sent to a shop in February, 2014.

When she failed to return home, an alarm was raised, and a search was launched.

The child's body was found in bushes with the throat slashed and arms bound.

Investigations by the St Thomas police led to Shannon's arrest.
