The artiste, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, was expected to stand trial in the Home Circuit Court this morning but could not.

The trial is now expected to start on April 13, 2015.

Ninja Man has been before the courts since 2009.

He is accused of the March 16, 2009 murder of Richard Johnson.

He is jointly charged with his son Janiel and another man, Dennis Clayton.

A fourth accused, Seymour Samuels, has died.
