JOHANNESBURG - The Lolly Jackson murder trial was postponed once again on Wednesday for further investigation.

George Louca is accused of murdering the strip club boss at a house in Kempton Park on Gauteng's East Rand back in 2010.

In February, Cypriot officials sent Louca back to South Africa after his extradition appeal failed in the country's highest court.

Special task force members cleared the courtroom and everyone was searched before Louca made a brief appearance.

The state says it conducted DNA tests but forensic analysts have been busy with the Oscar Pistorius murder case.

Prosecutors then asked for more time to investigate the matter.

Louca's new lawyer, Owen Blumberg, was escorted into court by a bodyguard.

He told the court although his client has been referred to as George Smith in the past, he will now be referred to as George Louca.

Louca will remain in custody at an undisclosed location until his next appearance on 12 May.
