X6 murder trial again pushed back

The long-awaited murder trial of businessman Patrick Powell has again been pushed back.



The matter was expected to get underway in the Home Circuit Court this morning.



However, the trial had to be put off as there was another case before it.



The trial was rescheduled to November 4.



Powell is accused of the 2011 killing of schoolboy Khajeel Mais.



Mais was shot dead on July 1, 2011 when the driver of a BMW X6 reportedly opened fire on the taxi in which he was travelling.



Powell went to the United States after the killing.



He returned days later and surrendered to the police.



During the police investigation, he was asked to surrender his licensed firearm for inspection and forensic analysis, but he allegedly refused to do so.



He was subsequently charged with failing to produce his firearm for inspection and murder.



The firearm case has been stalled pending the outcome of the murder trial.
