He is accused of strangling his former girlfriend Neelma Singh, her brother Kunal and sister Sidhi in 2003 Brisbane’s north.
ABC online reports the jury’s deliberations were delayed because of a problem with the preparation of DVDs of evidence yesterday.

If found guilty, Sica could face three life sentences each with a minimum 15 years before he is eligible for parole - making 45 years.
