MALAGA — A Briton convicted of murdering a Spanish teenager on the Costa del Sol went on trial accused of the attempted rape of another woman.

Tony King, who was condemned to 36 years in jail for the murder of Sonia Carabantes, allegedly carried out the attack in the town of Benalmadena, on the Costa del Sol, in 2001.

The alleged victim recognised King from seeing his picture on television when he was arrested for the murder of Miss Carabantes, 17, who was murdered in Coin in Andalusia.  Her body was found shortly after her death.

The woman got in contact with police to claim he attacked her in June 2001. 

The prosecutor asked the court in Malaga  to jail King for five years if he is convicted of attempted rape.

King denies the charge.

After a trial last year in Malaga, King was convicted of the murder of Miss Carabantes in August 2003. He denied murder.

He is also due to face trial for the murder of Rocio Wannikhof, 19, who went missing in October in 1999.

Her body was found three weeks later.
