TRIAL NUMBER THREE AWAITS MEGAMAN

Dawyne Vincent - who liked to be called Megaman when he was in the So Solid Crew - faces a third murder trial after the jury hearing his case at the Old Bailey were discharged.

Vincent is accused of encouraging Carl Morgan to shoot Colin Scarlett in November 2004; the first trial last year ended with the jury unable to reach a verdict. Today's trial ended when the judge said he had to discharge the jury in the "interests of justice":

"Material and fresh information has come to light at a very late stage of the proceedings.

"I have concluded after the most anxious and careful consideration that this material is of sufficient relevance that it has to be investigated further and put before a jury."


A date has yet to be set for the third trial.
