A new trial has been ordered for those charged in a deadly stage collapse at an outdoor Radiohead concert in Toronto, sending the case back to square one five years after the grim incident and just as the matter approached resolution.

A mistrial was declared after the presiding judge, Justice Shaun Nakatsuru, was appointed to the Ontario Superior Court this spring and found he no longer had jurisdiction over the case.

“It is with great regret that I have come to this decision. A lot of effort and resources have gone into this trial. We had nearly completed it,” Nakatsuru said in a decision released earlier this month.
