The trial of murder accused Tracy Jean Goodman resumed in Wanganui today, after agreement was reached on where she should stay during the case.
The High Court trial was adjourned yesterday, after it emerged no provisions had been made to accommodate her throughout the trial, expected to take about four weeks.
An inmate of Arohata Prison in Wellington, Goodman had been staying in a temporary holding cell at the Wanganui Police Station, a situation Justice Mark Cooper said was wholly inappropriate.
The court was told today the Corrections Department would now transport Goodman to and from the Palmerston North police station on Monday to Friday.
She would stay in Arohata at the weekend.
Goodman, 42, of Palmerston North, is charged with killing Marton pensioner Mona Morriss on January 3, 2005, and with burgling her flat on the same day.
She denies both charges.
The trial before a jury of four men and eight women began in the High Court at Wanganui on Monday.
As the local prison, Kaitoke, is men-only, Goodman has been sleeping in a police cell.
She has been classified as an "at risk" prisoner, which under police protocol means she must sleep with a light on in her cell.
