Accused killer of Michelle Coudray-Greaves granted bail
Jamaican accused of the abduction and murder of Trinidadian teacher to return to court on October 29.
KINGSTON, Jamaica, Wednesday July 25, 2012 – Jamaican taxi driver Ivan Taylor, the man accused of the abduction and murder of Trinidadian teacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves, was granted bail in the sum of JAM$400,000 on Monday.
He has been ordered to report to the Whithorn police station in Westmoreland three times per week until his scheduled return to court on October 29.
Additionally, a stop order has been placed at all ports and Taylor has been told not to interfere with witnesses.
Taylor has been in custody since June 11, three days after Coudray-Greaves, a 38-year-old mother of three, was reported missing in Jamaica.
The Westmoreland taxi driver is said to be one of the last persons to have seen her alive.
Days after the Trinidadian teacher went missing, a body burnt beyond recognition was found in a cane field in Montego Bay.
Positive identification of the remains was subsequently secured with the assistance of Coudray-Greaves’ mother Marlene Coudray, a high-ranking member of Trinidad’s ruling United National Congress (UNC).
A second post-mortem conducted on the body revealed that death was due to injuries to the right side of the head by a blunt instrument.
