The woman accused of stealing a baby from the Victoria Jubilee Hospital in downtown Kingston, was remanded in custody when she appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Monday.
27-year-old Peta-Gaye Ffrench, was remanded until March, when her case of child-stealing will again be mentioned.
Meanwhile, the attorney representing Ffrench has requested a psychiatric evaluation of the accused.
Ffrench was arrested two weeks ago when she attempted to register the stolen baby at the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) in Twickenham Park, St Catherine. Her efforts failed because there were inconsistency in her report of the child’s birth. The police were called in and she was subsequently arrested. The baby was reunited with its parents following a DNA test.
