Responding to solicitor Conal Boyce, the defendant said he was consenting to another adjournment.

Sgt Brian Jacob described the case as a “big file” with a large amount of statements.

He said he had been told that the file would be completed by December 10.

“As I said (previously) we’re working night and day on it,” added Sgt Jacob.

The court also heard that a pathologist’s report will be required.

Judge Desmond Zaidan said the case will ultimately be tried in the Central Criminal Court.
