THE trial of two teenagers accused of murdering aspiring rapper Umar Tufail is to begin in earnest on Friday.
Kyrone Daley and Sanchez Thomas, both 19, are said to have shot the 25-year-old in the head as he sat in a car outside his home in Wharncliffe Road, South Norwood, on July 25 last year.
The Old Bailey was due to hear opening statements from the prosecution and defence on Monday but proceedings after the trial's expected length was extended, with prospective jurors allowed time to find out if they could attend for a possible five rather than three weeks.
Then, after the jury was sworn in, Judge Stephen Kramer QC adjourned the case until Friday morning due to a legal matter.
Police believe Umar was killed in a tragic case of mistaken identity during a feud between rival groups in the area.
Daley, of Unity Close, West Norwood, and Thomas, of no fixed address, deny murder.
