The trial of 23 year old Sheldon Pusey who has been charged with the murder of 60 year old Ambassador Peter King has been put off for mention in the Home Circuit court on April 28.

The case was set for trial today, but Prosecutor Caroline Hay informed the court that the file was not ready.

She has asked for the case to be pushed back on the list mentioned.

The defense had reportedly asked for certain material that was taken from the home of the deceased, but the Crown has not seen some of the material.

Attorney-at-law Berry Bryan, who is representing the accused, said he wants an unedited version of videotape that he has been requesting.

The court has given one week for all the necessary information to be ready to be presented.

King was killed at his Waterloo apartment in March 2006.

His body was found with a slashed throat and several stab wounds.

Pusey is maintaining that he acted in self-defense, as King had made sexual advances at him.
