A retrial in a Kitchener murder case will move forward in St. Catharines.
Michael Ball will be coming back to court for renewed proceedings as early as January, with a trial expected to start in April.
The Region’s Crown Attorney’s office has confirmed the new location to 570NEWS.
Ball was charged with first-degree murder, and indignity to a body for the death of Elmira’s Erin Howlett in 2013.
Her body was found in a bag in the Grand River.
Ball was convicted on the indignity charge, but the murder charge ended with a mistrial.
