Dunedin, Ang. 20. At the Resident Magistrate’s Court, Naseby, yesterday. Ah Lee and Lee Guy were charged with the murder of Mary Young, at Kyeburn diggings, on the 4th inst. Inspector Hickson asked for a remand until next Thursday. He stated that the whole aspect of the case had been changed, and that he would he prepared to go on with the trial on that date. The remand was granted.
