TREVOR Taff, the Kingston businessman accused of decapitating the mother of his child and dumping her body in a septic pit in his yard, was remanded in police custody when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court last Thursday.
Taff was ordered kept behind bars until September 4, when a bail application is expected to be made on his behalf.
When the 48-year-old appeared in court, his attorney Chris Tavares-Finson complained that he hadn't been served with any court documents in the matter.
The clerk of court was then directed to serve the relevant case documents on the defence by the next court date.
According to the police report, Nicole Herron, a 26-year-old higgler, went to visit Taff at his Havendale dwelling on April 3, but didn't return to her home. After some time had passed, her relatives filed a missing person's report.
On May 5, the police went to Taff's house where several burnt articles of female clothing were allegedly discovered. Following a search of the premises, Herron's headless body was found with multiple stab wounds in the septic pit.
Taff was arrested the following day.
