The absence of a DNA report has stalled the bail application of the two brothers accused of raping five females family members in Irwin Point, St. James in September.
When the men returned to the Western Regional Gun Court today, the court was informed that analysis on DNA samples taken from them has not been completed.
The case was then put off to January 31, 2013.
The brothers have been each offered $200,00 bail on the gun related offences but cannot take it up because they are still on remand in relation to the other charges.
Those charges include a range of offences including robbery with aggravation, abduction, rape and grievous sexual assault.
The accused are being represented by Attorney-at-law Lambert Johnson.
On September 24, five females, including an eight-year-old girl, were abducted from their home in Irwin Point, St. James, and were then robbed and raped in an open lot in the area.
Following police investigation the two brothers were arrested and charged.
