Coudray-Greaves murder case - Dental records still outstanding
The case involving murdered Trinidadian teacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves has hit yet another snag in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrates Court.
With the dental records still out of the prosecution’s hands, the matter has been rescheduled for February 12, a report in the Jamaica Gleaner said yesterday. “We have on file a document from the organised crime division and the DNA report but the dental records and one officer’s statement are outstanding,” clerk of the court Natalie Malcolm told magistrate Sheron Barnes when the case was mentioned yesterday.
The report said Ivan Taylor, who has been charged in Coudray-Greaves’ death and is represented by attorneyat- law Stacy-Ann Young, was consequently remanded in police custody. “With respect to the dental records, the doctor is expected to return to the island on the 25th of this month so we are asking for the matter to be set thereafter,” Malcolm told the court.
“If you are able to take up your bail, come back on February 12. If not, you will be brought back then,” Barnes told Taylor as she ordered him to be remanded in custody. Coudray-Greaves, the daughter of Gender Affairs Minister Marlene Coudray, went missing last June 1, two days after returning to Jamaica from vacation in Trinidad.
Her burnt remains were found ten days later in a canefield close to Montego Bay. Taylor, a 45-year-old taxi operator, was charged with Coudray-Greaves' murder on June 30. The case has faced controversy with the revelation that Taylor might have been unlawfully interrogated by police on several occasions.
