THE trial of a suspect accused of double murder in Islington has been put back until the autumn at the request of lawyers preparing his defence.
Lee Wallace and Jayson Hassan died in a hail of bullets in the early hours of November 9 2010, outside Strang House in Britannia Row.
They were targeted in a row over a £3,000 debt by Daniel Wilson, 28, of Mile End, and his uncle Wayne Wilson, 43, from Preston, who were jailed for life last December and told they must spend 30 years behind bars.
Mr Lee, 25, of Loughton in Essex, whose family home is in Ritchie Street, Angel, and Mr Jayson, 28, of Bethnal Green, are believed to have been caught up in a gangland drugs feud and were shot by killers who arrived and left by car.
Rodney Morrison, 43, of Stratford, has denied any participation in the deaths and remains in custody.
He should have been before a jury last month but the Judge, Recorder of London Peter Beaumont, agreed to an application from prosecutor Crispin Aylett QC and defence QC Jeremy Dein to begin the trial on September 3.
