The murder trial of a Quincy man has been continued again.

The first degree murder trial of 31 year old Derek McKenzie had been set for January 22nd.

That date was vacated in Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday, as McKenzie’s attorneys wait for word on whether they will receive a grant to pay for a DNA expert for their defense.

McKenzie is accused in the December 7th, 2015 beating death of 48 year old Billy Graham in an apartment above the former Izzey’s Bar and Grill.

McKenzie will be back in court for a status update January 2nd.

He remains in the Adams County Jail on $5-million dollars bond.
