Bragg is accused of killing 36-year-old Victoria Head in St. John's on Nov. 11, 2017.

The 37-year-old father, originally from Shea Heights, was supposed to be finished his trial in February, but it was sidelined by Crown prosecutors after a mistake was identified at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

DNA for two people in unrelated cases had been accidentally mixed in an instance of cross-contamination.

It had nothing to do with Bragg's case, but the trial was delayed while the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary examined what happened and if it was possible more samples, including those in Bragg's case, could have been contaminated.

There were no further problems identified, but it was too late to start the trial.
