Saudi Prince on Trial for Killing

Saudi Prince Abdulaziz bin Nasser al-Saud is on trial in Britain for allegedly beating to death a servant in a London hotel—and the prosecutor alleges that bite marks show there was a “sexual element” to the crime. The 32-year-old victim, Bandar Abdulaziz, was found dead in February 15 in the hotel room at the Landmark hotel he was sharing with the prince. Saud described his relationship with his servant as "friends and equals," though the prosecutor claims evidence points to the prince's homosexuality. For his part, Saud says he is heterosexual. The prosecutor says the prince has admitted to the crime, and now jurors must decide whether he is guilty of murder or manslaughter.
