[ 249 Pa. Super. Page 435]

Appellant contends that the lower court erred when it granted the Commonwealth's petition to extend the period in which to try the appellant pursuant to Rule 1100(c), Pa.R.Crim.P., 19 P.S. Appendix.*fn1 The only allegation of due diligence in the Commonwealth's petition was that ". . . a trial cannot commence within the required period because [t]his case could not be tried during the May, 1975 Session of Court." Although in its order extending the period the court refers to a hearing on the petition, there are no notes of testimony in the record. In a similar situation, we remanded for completion of the record, for without transcription of the hearing, we could not determine the causes of the delay as required by Commonwealth v. Mayfield, 469 Pa. 214, 364 A.2d 1345 (1976). Commonwealth v. Tome, 248 Pa. Super. 242, 375 A.2d 78 (1977). Thus, we believe that we must remand the instant case to determine what evidence was produced by the Commonwealth at the original Rule 1100(c) hearing.

Case remanded for completion of the record.
