Murder trial adjourned


The trial of two people accused of a murder 13 years ago was adjourned yesterday and the jury released.

Cleveland Rogers, 52, and Katrina Burgess, 48, have denied the premeditated murder of Marcus Gibbings in 2006.

Mr Gibbings, originally from Trinidad, was found stabbed to death at an apartment at Derwent Lane, Devonshire, on October 26 that year.

A trial in Supreme Court began early last month, but the case was adjourned.

Mr Rogers and Ms Burgess returned to the Supreme Court yesterday for a new trial date.

The case was adjourned again until August 15 and a trial date is expected to be set for later this year.
