The trial of one of the men accused in the 2012 murders of Larry Grice and Andrea Pocklington has been continued.

Sancho Mitchell’s jury trial was set to begin this week but it’s been pushed back to September 8th. Mitchell, along with Jermaine Davis, both face first degree murder charges in the deaths along north 9th street.

Davis is set to stand trial next month but that, too, could be continued.
