KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Detective Sergeant Owen Campbell is to be cross-examined by defence attorneys today as the case continues in the St James Circuit Court.

In court yesterday, Campbell, who was attached to the Bethel Town Scene-of-Crime office in Westmoreland showed the jury photographs he took of the charred remains of school teacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves.

Coudray-Greaves, a Trinidadian working in Jamaica, went missing on June 1, 2012, and 11 days later her body was found in a cane-field in Montego Bay.

Meanwhile, a male civilian witness, said to be a close friend of the deceased woman, also testified yesterday.

He told the court that on the night the Trinidadian went missing, they were texting each other extensively.

Ten witnesses have so far testified at the trial, which began last week.
