Germaine Morrison, the 28-year-old bus driver who was charged with the death of 15-year-old Lennox Lloyd was again remanded.
The case against Morrison was again called up in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court today.
The case is now set for July 11.
Morrison is charged with one count of causing death by dangerous driving.
When the matter was called up for mention, the court was told that the file was still incomplete and the post mortem certificate was also outstanding.
Resident Magistrate Simone Wolfe-Reece told investigators to complete the file by the returned date, and to inform the Crown on the matter.
Attorney-at-Law, Oswest Senior Smith, who is representing Morrison, told the court that his client needs to get bail to provide for his three children.
It is alleged that on May 29, Morrison was driving a mini-bus towards Portmore. Upon reaching a section of the roadway, he encountered personnel from the Transport Authority.
The driver sped away to avoid the operation and on reaching the vicinity of the Maxie Department Store, he crashed into a wall and ended up into a ditch, killing the Ascot High School student and injuring others.
Morrison fled the scene, but later turned himself over to the police that day.
The mini-bus, a Toyota Hiace, which was loaded with other school children, plied the Naggo Head to Spanish Town Route.
