THE trial of three men accused of murdering Coventry teenager Jaydon James is rescheduled to start on Monday (September 28) at Leamington Justice Centre.
Jaydon, aged 16, known as JJ, was attacked in Deedmore Road, Wood End, in November 2018, and died from stab injuries later in hospital.
The original trial of Frank Kenfack, of no fixed address, 18, Bongani Ngozi, 18, of Rosemary Way, Hinckley, and Abdi Hussein, 21, Foleshill Road, Coventry began in February at Warwick Crown Court but was suspended a month later due to health concerns following the coronavirus outbreak.
The decision to stop the trial which, including legal arguments, was into its fourth week, was taken by Judge Andrew Lockhart QC after discussing the situation with leading counsel in the case in his chambers.
All three men deny murder and two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The trial is expected to last for four weeks.
