Alleged Trelawny child killer back in court

Published:Friday | January 17, 2014 | 10:36 AM

Marvia Patterson, the Trelawny woman accused of beheading four-year-old Natasha Brown, goes back to the Clark's Town Resident Magistrate's Court today.

The 42-year-old woman has been in police custody since the May 28, 2013 incident.

She was further remanded when she last appeared in court last November because a psychiatric report was still outstanding.

Her attorney Winston Douglas had complained about the length of time it was taking the authorities to complete the report.

Douglas lamented that the psychological report was needed for him to determine what steps to take in mounting his client's defence.

Patterson has reportedly confessed to beheading Natasha Brown and then dumping the child’s remains into a pit.

She is the ex-girlfriend of the father of the slain child.
