LEGAL discussions between Crown and defence counsel in the trial concerning the murder of a Doris Johnson Senior High School student continued for a second day in Supreme Court on Friday.

The 12-member jury panel sworn to hear evidence in the case of three accused teens - aged 18, 15 and 17 - had been excused for Thursday and Friday morning's court session and were not scheduled to return until 2.30pm.

However, more time was required and the jury was asked to return on Monday.

According to initial reports 16-year-old Adonai Wilson was stabbed multiple times on December 9, 2015, during an argument with several other students shortly after school was dismissed early because of exams. He died in hospital a short time later.

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

The teens have retained attorneys Murrio Ducille, Roberto Reckley and Ian Cargill to represent them. Kristan Stubbs and Bradford McKenzie are prosecuting for the Crown.

Justice Bernard Turner is the presiding trial judge.
