The trial over the death of dad-of-two Neill Buchel, whose body was found in a Rush Green lake, has been delayed by up to 11 days.
The jury was sent home yesterday and told to await an update next Thursday, January 29, although it is likely proceedings will not resume until Monday, February 1, the Recorder understands.
Mr Justice Spencer told the jury that an “unexpected and unavoidable difficulty” had arisen requiring a new counsel to represent Chas Quye, 36, of Stansgate Road, Dagenham.
Iain Morley QC has been appointed as a new barrister to replace Taylor Mayo QC and will use the coming days to prepare and continue the case.
Quye has pleaded not guilty to murder along with Scott Hunt, 36, of Braintree Road and Elvis Kwiatowski, 36, of Clopton Close, Royston.

The trial continues.
