Murder Trial of 2 Chilean Men Postponed in Kuala Lumpur

KUALA LUMPUR A judge in Kuala Lumpur postponed on Monday a trial hearing for two Chileans who are accused of murder.

Felipe Osiadacz, 27, and Fernando Candia, 30, who have pleaded not guilty, were arrested in Bangkok a year ago for allegedly killing a man while on vacation in Malaysia.

The public prosecutor for the case, who had already requested the trial be adjourned in order to prioritize other cases, has asked to be replaced in order to be able to go on holidays.

The judge accepted the request, and has given the replacement attorney three days to familiarize themselves with the case.

The defendants have denied the accusations, saying the Malaysian man pursued them to their hostel asking for money.

The man died after an ensuing scuffle, but the accused say they were acting in self-defense.

According to the forensic report, the Malaysian man was under the influence of several drugs.

In Malaysia, conviction for drug trafficking and voluntary homicide is punishable by death by hanging.

Trial hearings will conclude on Oct. 9.
