The double-murder trial of former police officer Phillip Mogashoa has again been postponed.

Mogashoa allegedly killed his former wife and her boyfriend, claiming that she wanted to kick him out of his house.

Mogashoa's new lawyer, Lucky Dikolomela, requested a postponement in the Johannesburg high court, saying he was unable to proceed because he had not obtained records of the court proceedings to date.

He had applied for the records to be typed on August 29.

"I was informed that the typing of records would resume on November 1 when the new company takes over," he said.

After confirming that the typing department was not "open", the judge adjourned the trial to December 4.

Mogashoa, 53, a retired policeman, handed himself over to the police in December after he allegedly shot his former wife, Caroline Mogashoa, and her boyfriend, Bongani Isaac Maseko.

The Mogashoas, who had been divorced for three years, were involved in a bitter dispute over the division of their estate.
