THE trial into the murder of a 12th grade Doris Johnson Senior High School student is expected to proceed today in the Supreme Court.

The teens accused of the murder, ages 18, 15 and 16, appeared before Justice Bernard Turner yesterday morning for their trial in the December 9, 2015 stabbing death of Adonai Wilson.

Though the jury pool was present, empanelling was adjourned to Tuesday morning at 10am.

According to initial reports, Wilson, a 16-year-old student, was stabbed multiple times during an argument with several other school students shortly after school was dismissed early because of exams. He died in hospital a short time later.

The murder took place around 2pm on Prince Charles Drive and a graphic cell phone video of the incident was spread on social media.

The teens, who have denied the murder charge they face, have retained attorneys Murrio Ducille, Ian Cargill and Roberto Reckley to represent them.
