The trial of the man accused of murdering Auckland woman Blessie Gotingco has been delayed until late April.
The 56-year-old's body was found at a North Shore cemetery soon after she was reported missing in May last year.
A 27-year-old man, who has name suppression, was charged with murder and also faces a charge of sexual violation.
He appeared at a pre-trial hearing in the High Court in Auckland today.
Radio New Zealand has been prevented from reporting anything about the hearing.
