Paul Coote who was on Wednesday taken into custody in relation to the murder of his pregnant girlfriend and their two children in Green Island, Hanover is to receive legal aid.
This was confirmed in a statement Thursday morning from the Legal Aid Council.
The Council said a few hours after his arrest, a request was made for Mr. Coote to be removed from the general lock-up population and placed in a special area for his safety and security.
Superintendent Sharon Beeput, head of the Hanover Police, told RJR News that Mr. Coote will be questioned on Friday.
Mr. Coote was held by the police shortly after he reportedly chopped to death 38 year old AnnaKaye Cunningham, who was eight months pregnant, and their two children - seven year old Jayanna Coote and four year old Shanique Coote.
Children's Advocate Diahann Gordon Harrison and Education Minister Ruel Reid are among those who have condemned the murders.
The classmates of the children have received counselling.
