An 18-year-old accused of murdering Jason Martin in Ballymena had the case further adjourned at the town’s Magistrates Court, sitting in Antrim, on Thursday.
Jason Martin (31), died at a house on Orkney Drive in the Ballykeel area of Ballymena at the end of June.
The accused is Jordan McClintock (18), of Orkney Drive.
A defence solicitor told an earlier hearing the incident was a tragedy.
At a court earlier this summer the solicitor had said: “I have been asked on behalf of the defendant and his whole family to extend their deepest, heartfelt, sympathy to the deceased’s family”.
The lawyer stressed that McClintock co-operated fully throughout police interviews.
The case was listed again on Thursday where a prosecutor said the case file was still to be received from police.
The prosecutor added: “We will try to get a further update for the next court.”
The case was further adjourned to mid-September.
