Halesowen street stabbing murder trial pushed back by five months
The trial of a man accused of murdering a Black Country barber has been pushed back by five months.
Stuart Roe, aged 34, was stabbed to death in a Halesowen street in the early hours of December 30 last year.
The trial of the man accused of his murder, Martyn Turley, was due to start at Birmingham Crown Court today but has now been adjourned until November 4.
Judge Edward Pepperall said it was "with regret" that the trial was postponed, with the defence still yet to see some of the CCTV evidence due to be put before the court.
Mr Roe, from High Street, Quarry Bank, died after being stabbed in Springfield Drive at around 1.30am on the Sunday before New Year's Eve. He had been drinking at The Britannia Wetherspoons pub.
Turley, aged 57 and from Whitehouse Street in Tipton, was arrested at around 4pm the same day.
He pleaded not guilty to murder and also denied possessing an offensive weapon in public when he appeared at Birmingham Crown Court in February.
