December date for murder trial

A woman’s murder trial delayed this month because of the illness of her defence counsel has now been set for December 2.

The two-week trial will take place in the High Court at Christchurch.

Defence counsel Margaret Sewell is now recovering after an operation on an aneurysm, which prevented the trial going ahead on August 12.

The name of the woman and facts relating to the case have been suppressed.
