The bail amount has been reduced for 45-year-old taxi operator Ivan Taylor, who is charged with the murder of Trinidadian teacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves.
The bond was adjusted when Taylor appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrateís Court today.
In an application this morning Taylorís lawyer, Stacy-Ann Young, argued that her client was finding it difficult to source funds for the initial $400,000- bail.
Resident Magistrate Sandria Wong-Small agreed to reduce his bail to $300,000 with up to three sureties.
As a condition of his bail, Taylor is to report to the Whithorn Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 7 oí clock in the morning and 6 oí clock in the evening.
Meanwhile, the prosecution informed the court that several documents are still outstanding from its case file, including telephone records, dental records, and the forensic certificate.
The case was subsequently set for mention on November 13.
Taylor was charged with the murder of Coudray-Greaves on June 30, after the teacherís burnt remains were found in a cane-field close to Montego Bay on June 11.
