The Dutch couple bodies were found chopped inside bin bags buried in the house's backyard lemon grove.

DELAYS could occur in the trial of the men accused of the murder of Dutch volleyball player Ingrid Visser and her partner Lodewijk Severein in Molina de Segura.

The proceedings have been completed in record time of 18 months, but now, Judge Augusto Morales from the Provincial Court of Murcia, said a series of blunders exists which could force the delay of the judgement and result in a number of testimonies being retaken.

Morales has also criticised the Judge of Molina de Segura and the Court Clerk for not having sufficient knowledge or experience in what is “a very complex and highly sensitive” trial.

Ingrid Visser and Lodewijk Severein were killed in May 2013. The former manager of a volleyball club, Juan Cuenca is accused of hiring Romanians Constantin Stan and Valentin Ion to kill, dismember and bury the couple. Serafin de Alba is accused of being an accessory.
