Murder trial delayed again

    Invercargill District Court.

    Graham (32) is accused of murdering Dale Watene at Otautau on April 16, 2020.

    George Hyde (24), who is also standing trial, is accused of being an accessory after the fact to murder at Otautau between April 16 and 27, 2020.

    Yesterday Justice Gerald Nation adjourned the trial start date to Monday but suppressed the reasons as to why it was again delayed.

    The body of Mr Watene (40) was found by police at Longwood Forestry Block in May 2020, about a month after he went missing.
