More investigation needed
A trial in the Blenheim District Court had to abandoned yesterday, barely half an hour after it started.
Judge David McKegg discharged the jury of eight women and four men almost as soon as the planned two-day trial had begun, saying a matter had come up which needed more investigation.
He suppressed all details about the trial and why it was abandoned, so a fair trial could be held in the future.
