On Wednesday the court was told that the post mortem report and other documents were incomplete.

A new date of September 10 was set when the two men who are charged in connection with the murder of 13 year-old Shanoya Wray appeared in court Wednesday morning.

The two – 27-year-old Trinidadian national Sanjay Maharaj, who is a school teacher - and 19-year-old Lenardo Madden, a former medical student at the University of the West Indies, Mona, were remanded in custody.

Maharaj has been charged with murder while Madden was charged with accessory after the fact.

On Wednesday the court was told that the post mortem report and other documents were incomplete.

The two men were held days after Wray’s skeletal remains were found in a bath tub with a toxic substance at a property on Whalley Close in Mona, St. Andrew on July 20.

Police were alerted to the house after neighbours smelled a foul odour.

According to investigators, Maharaj killed Wray and used chemicals in an attempt to get rid of the body. He was already before the Home Circuit Court accused of having sex with the underage girl.
