Missing paperwork causes hold-up case adjournment

THE case against a Bowraville trio accused of staging a series of hold ups around the region earlier this year, hit a wall in the Coffs Harbour Local Court yesterday .

Phillip Charles John Jarrett, 37, Kirk Stadhams, 29 and Jasmine Bowden, 25 were expected to be committed to the district court but missing paperwork and a stint in hospital for one of the accused delayed the proceedings.

Frustrated Magistrate Alex Mijovich reluctantly adjourned the case until December 11 when it "must proceed".

Police allege the trio were responsible for an armed robbery at the Urunga BCU branch on June 4 and were involved other earlier hold ups at the Coffs Harbour South McDonalds on May 14 and the BP service station at Boambee on May 16.

Meanwhile accused murderer Adam John Kennedy's lawyers have until the New Year to bargain with the DPP over a series of allegations being brought against him.

The 24-year-old Bowraville man allegedly killed a 43-year-old New Zealand woman at her Toormina home earlier this year.

He has since been charged with a number of further offences relating to drug and firearm trafficking, escaping police custody and high range drink driving.

He was represented by his lawyer in the Coffs Harbour Local Court yesterday who said he needed time to have "discussions" with the DPP before the case could go ahead.

Kennedy will front court again on January 15.
