THE start of the trial of three men accused of a murder that occurred six years ago has been delayed by an ongoing case.
Lynden Prosper, 26, D’Angelo Adderley, 26, and Denard Davis, 25, were scheduled to stand trial before Justice Bernard Turner yesterday.
However, the judge is still presiding over another trial concerning the fatal stabbing of a Doris Johnson Senior High School student.
The witnesses to give evidence in the case of Prosper, Adderley and Davis were instructed to return to the Supreme Court on Tuesday for further instructions.
The three men deny the murder and attempted murder charges they face for the November 3, 2010 killing of Sheria Curry and attempted murder of her 10-year-old son. Shanko Smith.
On the day in question, Curry, a Step Street resident, and her son were sitting with a group of people outside their home when the incident occurred.
Curry was shot in the head and her son in the leg. The 40-year-old died at the scene.
Davis and Prosper have retained lawyers Murrio Ducille and Ian Cargill to defend them. Adderley is represented by Stanley Rolle.
