Vasyli’s Pretrial Delayed

Donna Vasyli, the woman is accused of stabbing her millionaire husband to death, returned to court on Monday expecting a pretrial hearing, but she was told that the pretrial has been delayed.

Prosecutor Neil Braithwaite said the necessary evidence to carry on with the hearing has not been disclosed therefore, the pretrial will not be held for the next two months.

Vasyli, 54, was arrested in March of this year for the brutal murder of her husband, Australian podiatrist 59-year-old Phillip Vasyli.

Last month, Vasyli was denied bail for a second time by Senior Justice Steven Isaacs.

Yesterday, however, Vasyli’s attorney Murrio Ducille said they will reapply for bail after Braithwaite announced the delay in the pretrial hearing.

Braithwaite told the court that the delay was caused by items that had not been disclosed including photographs and videos of the crime scene, surveillance videos and forensic files that were being examined abroad.

Attorney Ducille said he will send a formal application for bail by the end of this week to give prosecution the opportunity to cordially respond in court next Tuesday.

After a back and forth between the attorneys to determine a date for a pretrial hearing, they came to an agreement that the pretrial and mention hearing will take place on August 25, 2015.

Until then, Vasyli will remain in police custody.
