The families of murdered local women Kathy Dinsmore and Marion Graham may have to wait six months before a judge decides if the accused should be transferred to an adult court from a juvenile court. Recep Cetin murdered the two women last August near the city of Izmir in Turkey. Bone marrow tests have shown Mr Cetin to be 22 years old, not 17 as he originally claimed, however the judge has ordered the test files to be sent to Istanbul for further examination. The lawyer for the family, Baris Kaska, has said that the next hearing is scheduled for the 7th June, but he doubted the judge would make the decision on the transfer to the adult court for potentially another 6 months. The lawyer also expects prosecutors to formally charge Eyup Cetin, the father of Recep Cetin, in connection with the murder in the coming weeks.
