GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (KKCO) - A European high court ruling has delayed a decision on whether an accused murderer will be extradited back to Colorado.

Marcus Bebb-Jones remains in England where he was arrested on murder charges in connection to the death of his wife Sabrina more than a decade ago. The pair owned the Melrose Hotel in downtown Grand Junction before she disappeared. Her skull was found near Douglas Pass six years ago.

Garfield County District Attorney Martin Beeson says Bebb-Jones will be back in court in January for a hearing on his final appeal, which was supposed to have taken place back in October.

His fighting his extradition and the European Court of Human Rights making rulings on cases regarding life in prison are responsible for the delay. Bebb-Jones faces life in prison without parole if convicted.

Beeson says he hope the English High Court will make a decision on Bebb-Jones' extradition before the end of January.
