PHUKET TOWN: Suspect Nongnut Tungkaburi failed to appear in court yesterday as the result of an illness which, according to a letter from her doctor, required that she remain at home for two days, February 9-10. Her representative also told the court that she has retained a new, Bangkok-based lawyer who would be able to attend court in Phuket next month. Judge Monsikarn Watchawanku adjourned the case until March 24. Nongnut and Kraisorn Kamnoun are charged with the December 15, 1997 murder of 56-year-old British publican and former bond dealer Roger Jennings. The victim was murdered in his home at Patong Hill Estate and died from loss of blood following 19 stab wounds.
