February trial for two for Kaiapoi murder

Two men will go on trial for murder on February 25, 17 months after the death of Bradley Alan Lomax at Kaiapoi.

Kasha William Gosset, 36, a landscape gardener from Oxford, and Cody Derek Martin, a 31-year-old drainlayer from Mairehau in Christchurch, deny murdering Mr Lomax on September 4, 2017.

The date for the three-week trial was set at a pre-trial call-over in the High Court at Christchurch where the trial will take place.

Justice Cameron Mander further remanded the pair in custody after their appearances by video-link today.

Mr Lomax’s body was found beside the Waimakariri River north of Christchurch. Several members of the Rebels Motorcycle Club attended his funeral.

Gosset and Martin were arrested a week after his body was found.
