Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

THE WEST­ERN Cape High Court has set a date for the trial of Gu­atemalan mur­der ac­cused Diego Novella, who has been charged with the mur­der of his girl­friend, US mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive Gabriela Kabrins Al­ban, in Camps Bay last year.

The court set the date yes­ter­day when Novella made a brief ap­pear­ance for a pre-trial con­fer­ence.

How­ever, de­fence at­tor­ney Wil­liam Booth is in dis­cus­sions with the State un­til then and his client will have to make an­other pre-trial ap­pear­ance next month. Booth ex­plained that the dis­cus­sions were aimed at short­en­ing the trial. He would not elab­o­rate fur­ther.

The trial has been set down for April 16 and Novella will ap­pear in the High Court again for a pre-trial con­fer­ence on Novem­ber 18.
