READING, Pa. - The wheels of justice continue to turn for a former fugitive accused of killing his estranged wife, despite a court hearing being postponed Monday.
Miguel Torres was due to appear in court for a judge to decide whether prosecutors have enough evidence for the former Exeter Township man to stand trial on murder charges in the 2005 shooting death of his estranged wife.
No new date for the hearing has been scheduled, according to court officials.
Torres has been held without bail in the Berks County Jail since Nov. 22 when law enforcement authorities returned him to Reading from Italy, where he was captured on March 15.
Torres, 43, had been on the run as one of America's most wanted since police and prosecutors said he gunned down his estranged wife, Barbara Torres, outside the bank where she worked in downtown Reading on Sept. 12, 2005.
Barbara Torres filed for divorce from her husband just weeks before she was killed, according to court documents.
