Poker players have been in the news for all the wrong reasons this week with new developments in murder trials involving Marcus Bebb-Jones and Ron Fanelli.
Bebb-Jones, a regular on the UK tournament circuit, has lost an extradition appeal and will now stand trial in America accused of murdering his wife, Sabrina, in 1997. If found guilty, Bebb-Jones could face a mandatory life sentence. The former Grosvenor Grand Prix winner was arrested in 2009 and has been appealing against his extradition ever since. The High Court in London has now rejected his final appeal.In Thailand, psychiatrists have declared that Ron Fanelli is sane and fit to stand trial for the murder of Wanpen Pianchai. Fanelli admitted killing the Thai bar hostess but underwent five months of psychiatric assessment after displays of increasingly erratic behaviour. The doctors at Surat Thani have completed their tests and declared that Fanelli can stand trial but no date has been set for his next court appearance.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
