Donald Kington, a 49 year old handyman, who is facing rape, abduction and burglary charges was remanded on Wednesday when he appeared in the St. Ann Parish Court.
Mr. Kington has been charged in relation to the case of a nine-year-old girl who was taken from her home in Ocho Rios almost three years ago.
He is scheduled to return to court on March 9.
It was alleged that Mr. Kington went to a house in Warrick Mount in Great Pond on the morning of February 6, 2014 and abducted the child.
Mr. Kington reportedly took her to his house in Exchange, where he lived alone.
The child wandered from the house and was seen by residents.
Mr. Kington had been on the run since the incident.
He was held in Moneague, St. Ann on January 17 and pointed out in an identification parade last Friday.
