Adjournment to next year for Cairns man charged with killing wife
THE case of a Cairns man charged with killing his wife has been adjourned to next year for the man's defence lawyers to finalise a list of witnesses to cross-examine at a committal hearing.
Klaus Andres, 69, is accused of killing 42-year-old Li Ping Cao on or about October 30 last year, allegedly after she found out her husband had become romantically involved with another woman.
Today in the Cairns Magistrates’ Court, defence solicitor Stephen O’Reilly said there were 196 witnesses and 224 exhibits to go through and he asked for more time to make an application to cross-examine witnesses at a committal hearing.
The application was granted, and the case was adjourned to February 6 for a committal mention.
