Tony King murder trial delayed indefinitely

7 April 2005

MADRID – A court in the southern Spanish city of Malaga has postponed the trial of British murder suspect Tony Alexander King, who is accused of killing a young woman.

King’s trial was delayed indefinitely on medical grounds, court sources said.

King’s defence counsel produced a medical certificate saying he was sick and in hospital, setting back the start of the trial initially due to start next Monday.

King, 39 and a former barman who has lived in Spain for nine years, faces up to 44 years in jail if found guilty of killing Sonia Carabantes in August 2003 when the 17-year-old walked home from a village party.
