The man and woman accused of murdering Picton woman Robyn Grace have been remanded in custody for a further two weeks to allow psychiatric reports to be completed.

The unemployed woman, 26, appeared in the Blenheim District Court yesterday, while the man, 19, remained in Christchurch and was represented by his lawyer.

Both were remanded to appear again on February 11 to allow reports to be completed assessing whether they are fit to plead or stand trial for the murder on January 13.

Judge Tony Zohrab ordered name suppression to continue.
