The five men charged with the beheading of a woman and her daughter in Lauriston, St Catherine, in July 2011 are to return to the Home Circuit Court on October 11.




A trial date could not be set today when they appeared in court because two of the men were only recently assigned lawyers to represent them.



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



It is being 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, then cut off their heads and dumped them some distance away from the murder scene.



The five men were arrested and charged following police investigation.
