Woman accused of beheading child remanded
The Trelawny woman who reportedly killed a four-year-old child in Duanvale in the parish in May is to return to court next year.
Marvia Patterson's case was put off to January 17, when she appeared in the Clark’s Town Resident Magistrate’s Court today as her psychological report was not available.
Attorney-at-Law, Winston Douglas, who represented Patterson, argued that the report, which was outstanding when the case was last mentioned in September was needed for him to determine what steps to take in mounting his client’s defence.
Patterson has reportedly confessed to beheading little Natasha Brown and then dumping the child’s remains into a pit.
