The presiding judge and prosecution and defence lawyers in the Michaela McAreavey murder trial have agreed a way to address the issue that caused the adjournment of proceedings this morning.

Earlier, before the jury members were brought to the court, defence lawyer Sanjeev Teeluckdharry raised issues about the way the case was being conducted.

The issue was addressed during legal discussions and week seven of the trial is due to begin on Monday.

Two local hotel workers are accused of murdering the 27-year-old Co Tyrone woman while she was on her honeymoon with her husband John in January last year.

Avinash Treebhoowoon and Sandip Moneea both deny the charge.

The prosecution has completed its case in the trial.

Mr Teeluckdharry will have a chance to re-examine Mr Treebhoowoon in the witness box next week.
