Max Sica's trial into allegations of sex with an underage girl has been deferred to Monday to allow his lawyers to consult two specialists.

The Courier Mail reports that his lawyers wanted expert opinions to refute a Crown report which found it was possible for the girl's hymen to remain intact after sexual penetration.

Brisbane District Court Judge Michael Shanahan said the trial would definitely start on Monday no matter what the situation with the defence experts.

Sica, now 42, who is serving a 35 non-parole jail sentence handed to him in July for the 2003 murders of his ex-girlfriend Neelma Singh, 24, and her siblings Kunal, 18, and Sidhi, 12, is alleged to have repeatedly molested a young girl during a 4-year period since 2004. The three were the children of former Fiji residents Vijay and Shirley SIngh.

He has pleaded not guilty to the 21 charges, including rape.

The girl was said to have started documenting her almost four-year intimate sexual relationship with Sica in a series of coded diary entries.

Sica is alleged to have had sex with the girl on numerous occasions, including in his parent's matrimonial bed, in a public park while delivering take-out meals from one of his parents' restaurants and after celebrating the girl's 12th birthday with cake.

Sica, then aged 35 to 39, between November 15, 2004, and September 10, 2008 is alleged to have sexual relationship with the girl when she was nine until she was 13.

The alleged relationship was revealed when the girl told school friends she was in love with an older man with whom she was having sex.

The trial began Tuesday.
