FIVE men accused of the double murder of a Holmes Rock couple were in the Supreme Court for what was supposed to be the start of their trial, however it was postponed to October 3.

Paul Belizaire, Devaughn Hall, Allan Alcime, Virgil Hall, and Kevin Dames appeared in the court on Thursday, with their attorneys.

The courtroom and upstairs lobby were filled with persons reporting for jury duty, however the selection of a jury panel did not proceed as planned.

The men are accused of killing Barry and Sheena Johnson, who were found murdered at their residence on September 12, 2015.
