Missing April Jones: Mark Bridger murder trial adjourned
THE family of five-year-old April Jones will have to wait another two months before the man accused of her murder goes on trial, a court heard today (25/2/13).
Mark Bridger was arrested the day after the schoolgirl vanished while playing on her bike near her home in Machynlleth, Mid Wales, on October 1 last year.
The 47-year-old was due to go on trial at Mold Crown Court today.
But the case was adjourned by Mr Justice Griffith-Williams on application of the defence "to make further inquiries".
