  • Description

    Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, the accused assassin of Senator Robert Kennedy, Monday was granted a postponement of his trial until December 9th, at a court hearing in Los Angeles, California.

    The hearing lasted one hour 11 minutes -- the longest of seven hearings which have been held for the 24 year old Jordanian since he was arrested and charged with the June 5 murder of Senator Kennedy.

    At the hearing, the prosecution said it has found no evidence which points to any suspect except Sirhan, and no evidence of any conspiracy in the murder.

    The trial originally was set for November 1st. It was postponed because one of the defense attorneys is still involved in another case.

    In granting the postponement to December 9th, the judge said he will call a recess for the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

    After the hearing, Sirhan was returned to his jail cell just a few yards away from the makeshift courtroom.
