IT WILL be another month before the family of beheaded Broadwater man Edward "Ned" Kelly learns whether the case against his murderer will go to trial.

More than a year after he was arrested over the gruesome murder, Jonathon Andrew Stenberg has yet to enter a plea.

The 46-year-old was expected to be arraigned in the Sydney Supreme Court on Friday but a last-minute change delayed the process once again.

Mr Kelly's body was discovered in his Broadwater home in June last year.

A hat had been placed where his head - which has never been found - should have been.

Police tracked Mr Stenberg to a remote camping site in the Northern Territory where he was arrested two weeks later.

The case will return to court on September 5.
