James Greene died in hospital on Thursday, June 6, following an attack at Dolphin Grove, in Norwich, where he lived, on June 4.
Peter Bruton, now 27, has gone on trial accused of the murder of Mr Greene, which he denies.
The trial was due to sit on Friday (November 15) having initially been adjourned on Thursday as Bruton, who is in custody, had not received his medication.
But Bruton was not in the dock again on Friday.
