The trial of 48-year-old who drove into the back of a car in Limassol, causing the death of its driver, 25, was adjourned for the second time on Friday after the defence asked for additional evidence they had not yet received.
The case was rescheduled for February 9.
Yiannis Kyriakides faces charges including manslaughter, which carries a maximum penalty of life in jail, and causing death due to reckless and dangerous behaviour.
The suspect, who has been in hospital with a broken leg since the incident on October 30, appeared in court in a wheelchair, guarded by police.
Kyriakides caused Stephanos Georgiou’s death when the BMW X6 he was driving slammed violently into the back of the victim’s car, stationary at a red light on Enaerios.
Test results showed that the defendant had been driving under the influence of cocaine, cannabis, and alcohol.
He had no valid driver’s licence and has another case pending against him for speeding.
Kyriakides, a taxi driver, had been given a two-month suspended jail sentence earlier this year for speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol. Both his professional and personal driver’s licences had been revoked for six months
