The trial of five people accused of the murder of a man in Norfolk due to start this month will now go ahead later this year.
David Lawal died from a single stab wound in Brandon Road, Thetford, on October 3 last year.
Lisa Desousa, 22, of London Amrik Singh, 18 of London, Iddi Zito, 18, from East London and Elie Saba, 34, of Ilford and a 17-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons have all denied one count of murder and conspiracy to supply Class A drugs between April 1 and November 21.
The trial had to be put back earlier this year because Covid restrictions meant there would be difficulties with having a trial involving so many defendants.
It was due to go ahead on February 22 but the case has now been listed for November 18.
