Yansen Charles, Jackson’s former girlfriend, was charged with murder, and the Preliminary Inquiry was expected to have begun on July 19.

However, when the accused appeared at the Serious Offences Court on September 4, she was told that the P.I. is now expected to begin on November 5.

This after the court heard that the prosecution, is still waiting for the doctor’s report.

“Am I to keep Charles on remand indefinitely?” Chief Magistrate Sonya Young questioned the prosecution as she sought to get a date when the report would be made available.

She threatened to release the accused until such time that the report was ready.

Following a short recess, the court heard that the report was presently at the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police and would be making its way to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Jackson, 39, of Buccament Bay, died at the Milton Cato Hospital on March 25, after allegedly being stabbed in the left temple with a screwdriver on March 21 at Campden Park. (DD)
