The body of the 56-year-old was found at a North Shore cemetery soon after she was reported missing in May last year.

A 27-year-old man, who could not be identified for legal reasons, was charged with murder and also faced a charge of sexual violation.

The trial was due to begin on March 2 but has been adjourned, although the time already set aside would be used to deal with pre-trial matters.
