The murder trial of alleged gang leader Christopher Linton also called 'Dog Paw' has failed to get underway.



The matter was slated to begin in the Home Circuit Court yesterday but had to be put off because there were other cases before it.



The trial was rescheduled to June 16.



It is being alleged that on December 19, 2010, Linton and two others murdered Dania Forbes, Marnest Hylton and six-year-old Johleme McKay in Bedward Gardens in August Town, St Andrew.



Fire was set to the house in which the three were sleeping.



Donald Allen and Yannick Ellis are charged jointly with Linton.



Linton, who was freed of a gun charge last month, is serving a 15 year prison sentence for shooting at a police team in Tavern, St Andrew in April 2010.
