The trial of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy on charges of inciting the killing of protesters is to resume Saturday in Cairo.

Mr. Morsy had arrived at the Police Academy on the outskirts of Cairo, where the trial is being held, the state-run al-Ahram newspaper reported.

In the previous session in the case, one of four against Mr. Morsy, he was not transferred to the court because of bad weather, security officials said. He is detained in a prison in the coastal city of Alexandria.

Mr. Morsy and 14 other defendants from his administration and the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood group face charges of inciting the killing of 10 opposition protesters in December 2012. He could face the death penalty if convicted.

The trial opened in November.

Mr. Morsy served a year in office before he was deposed by the military in July after protests across Egypt demanding his overthrow.

The three other cases against him are on charges related to escaping prison during the 2011 uprising that toppled his predecessor Hosni Mubarak, sponsoring terrorism and insulting the judiciary.

Mr. Morsy has said all the charges against him are politically motivated.

He also appeared in court on Tuesday in the jail break case, telling the judge, “I am the legitimate president of the country.” It was his second court appearance since his overthrow.
