'Ned' Kelly murder case delayed for another month

IT WILL be another month before the family of beheaded Broadwater man Edward "Ned" Kelly learns whether the case against his murderer will go to trial.

More than a year after he was arrested over the gruesome murder, Jonathon Andrew Stenberg has yet to enter a plea.

The 46-year-old was expected to be arraigned in the Sydney Supreme Court on Friday but a last-minute change delayed the process once again.

Mr Kelly's body was discovered in his Broadwater home in June last year.

A hat had been placed where his head - which has never been found - should have been.

Police tracked Mr Stenberg to a remote camping site in the Northern Territory where he was arrested two weeks later.

The case will return to court on September 5.
