MOTRIL - A Spanish judge has summoned Briton Tony Alexander King, who is in jail on suspicion of involvement in the murders of two young women, to testify as a witness in a third case involving an 18-year-old woman who went missing two years ago.
 
Judicial sources in the southern city of Motril, in Granada province, said an examining magistrate looking into the case of María Teresa Fernandez, believes King's testimony may be "the last chance" to learn if the Briton had knowledge of Fernandez' disappearance in 2002.
 
Fernandez' family requested that the judge ask the court in the Mediterranean resort city of Fuengirola, which is investigating King's possible involvement in the murder of  Rocio Wanninkhof, to have him testify.
 
The family made the request after learning that in a letter to his ex-wife, King indicated that his former friend, Robert Graham, was involved in the murder of Wanninkhof and "that girl in Motril".
 
King is being held in the Albolote prison in Granada province where he was transferred last July from a Malaga lockup for security reasons.
