A JURY returns to the Supreme Court today for the expected continuation of trial into the murder of Doris Johnson Senior High School student Adonai Wilson.

The 12-member panel sworn to hear evidence in the case of three accused teens - aged 18, 15 and 17 - were excused for yesterday’s morning and afternoon court sessions while legal discussions were held with the judge, Crown and lawyers for the accused.

They were asked to return at 2.30pm today.

According to initial reports, Wilson, 16, was stabbed multiple times during an argument with several other students shortly after school was dismissed early on December 9, 2015, 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 spread quickly 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.
