Addis, of Radinden Manor Road, Hove, is accused of murdering his 69-year-old grandmother on Thursday 7 January last year at her home in Cedars Gardens, Brighton.

The popular restaurant boss was found stabbed to death in her bath.

Addis denies murder but admits manslaughter.

The case is being listed for mention on Monday 30 May with a view to fixing a new trial date.

    What has led to this?

  2. Frank le Duc Reply

    With a new trial date to be fixed, there are limits on what can be reported for now.

    Entirely understand the restrictions on reporting.
    But surely now there is a legitimate interest on the part of the public to know what procedures are being followed and, even more important, why they are not working.

      “I understand why there are limitations on reporting but tell us” 😅😅😅🙄

      Legal procedures are being followed, including WHY the trial has been pushed back again, you don’t need to know why, the public doesn’t need to know why either, because whatever the reason is my cause the prosecution to fall apart.
