Murder Trial of Two Chileans Resumes in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR A court in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday resumed hearings in the trial of two Chileans accused of murder in Malaysia, a crime punishable by death.

After a postponement of six weeks, the prosecution continued with the testimony of three police officials: an emergency operator, a photographer at the scene and a coroner.

Statements during the hearing focused on the technical aspects and the timing of the photographs taken.

Four other officers investigating the case are expected to testify on Friday.

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

Both defendants were surrounded by their families who offered them encouragement and support.

The prosecution has until Oct. 9 to conclude with the presentation of its arguments.

The accused say the Malaysian man pursued them to their hostel demanding money.

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

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

In Malaysia, conviction for drug trafficking and voluntary homicide results in death by hanging.
