    The trial of two people accused of killing a young Christchurch mum 25 years ago has been delayed

    The trial of two people accused of killing a young Christchurch mum 25 years ago has been delayed


    Angela Blackmoore was 10 weeks pregnant when she was bludgeoned and stabbed to death while her two-year-old son slept in the next room.

    Last year 45-year-old Jeremy Powell pleaded guilty to carrying out a contract killing - and he was jailed for a minimum of 10 years in June.

    Rebecca Wright-Meldrum and a man with name suppression have also been charged with Blackmoore's murder.

    They've both pleaded not guilty.

    Their trial was scheduled to begin at the High Court in Christchurch next February - but this morning the trial date was vacated.

    A new one's yet to be announced.
