The case of murdered Trinidadian school-teacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves was mentioned for the first time today in the St James Circuit Court.

The matter was transferred to the higher court after State prosecutors discontinued the matter in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court.

The matter, however, was put off until July 24 after lead prosecutor Loxley Ricketts told the presiding Justice, Sara Thompson-James, that representation was not finalised for the 45-year-old accused.

Justice Thompson-James ordered that Taylor be remanded in custody until the next mention date when his representation should be settled and documentation served on his appointed legal counsel.

Coudray-Greaves went missing on June 1 last year, two days after returning to Jamaica from vacation in Trinidad.

Her burnt remains were subsequently found on June 11, in a cane-field in Montego Bay.

Taylor was reportedly the last person to see her alive and was arrested and charged for her murder on June 30.
