THE St Andrew construction worker who allegedly beat his lover to death and threw her tarpaulin-wrapped body in a gully near their Crystal Tower Apartments in St Andrew, was yesterday remanded in police custody.

He is scheduled to return to the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on January 27.

Phillip Brown, 35, of Old Hope Road in St Andrew, was arrested and charged with murder last week after he surrendered to the police following the death of his former lover Kerry-Ann Wilson, 31.

Wilson was reportedly found beaten to death and wrapped in a tarpaulin in a gully on December 10 near the apartment complex on Old Hope Road, just across from the Office of the Commissioner of Police.

When the case was mentioned yesterday, Brown’s attorney Hugh Faulkner requested another mention date and a new date was fixed by Senior Parish Judge Judith Pusey.

In the meantime, the prosecutor informed the court that the post-mortem report was outstanding.

During the proceedings Brown appeared to be in a daze while standing in the dock and maintained that look as he huddled in a corner in the holding area.
