Murder trial date delay for accused father
A judge has extended the custody time limits on East Devon man accused of murdering his ten-month-old daughter.
James Hunt, aged 30, was due to stand trial before a High Court judge at Exeter Crown Court this month but the case has been put back to January because of problems with expert evidence.
Judge Francis Gilbert, QC, extended the six-month custody time limit to allow Hunt to remain on remand until the case is heard next year.
It is likely to take three weeks and involve specialist medical witnesses called on both sides.
