The start of the trial of the five men charged with the beheading of a mother and daughter in Lauriston, St. Catherine in 2011 has been rescheduled to February 29 next year.

The trial could not proceed in the Home Circuit Court today because another murder case is ongoing.

The accused - Adrian Campbell, Fabian Smith, Kemar Riley, Rushane Goldson and Sanjay Ducally- were further remanded.

They are facing charges of murder and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

Forty-nine-year-old Charmaine Cover-Rattray, and her daughter, 19-year-old Joeith Lynch were asleep in their Lauriston home on July 20, 2011 when thugs kicked off their door and entered.

The men reportedly murdered the woman and her daughter and then cut-off their heads.
