The homicide trial of ex ITV wrestling star Jim Breaks has been suspended due to coronavirus.
Earlier this year Breaks, 80, was charged with killing his ex-girlfriend Donna Cowley, 47, at his Gran Canaria flat and his trial was due to begin in court in Las Palmas on Monday.
He had been warned state prosecutors were demanding a 15-year jail sentence ahead of his trial.
Other trials are still going ahead as scheduled but Breaks' was postponed as it was bing tried by a nine-member jury and not three judges as sometimes happens in Spain.
State prosecutors said he punched Ms Cowley around the face and body after smashing a cup over her head during an argument.
Breaks, from Bradford, west Yorks, was remanded in prison after his June 30 2017 arrest.
Prosecutors allege Breaks abandoned severely injured Yorkshire-born Donna in the bathroom of his flat in the holiday resort of Puerto Rico after assaulting her.
She managed to call the emergency services for help but died in hospital the following day.
Jim, known as Cry Baby in the ring, was a familiar face for almost 30 years on Saturday afternoon TV when millions tuned in to watch his fights.
Mum-of-two Donna moved to Gran Canaria more than 20 years ago with Breaks after working for him at a pub he owned in Bradford.
Breaks allegedly told a judge she was acting as his carer when she died and they were not dating.
She is understood to have moved back in with him after they finished dating when she lost her job.
No new date has been set for Breaks’ rescheduled trial.
Breaks won the Northern Featherweight Championship after entering the amateur wrestling ranks before being trained for the professional ring by Bernard Murray.
He won the British Lightweight championship against Melwyn Rees in October 1963, holding the title until February 15th 1967 when he lost it to Al Miquet.
Breaks went on to win the belt a further nine times before losing it for the final time against Steve Grey on March 22 1984.
He was a regular on TV when televised wrestling reached record audiences.
Breaks appeared on TV for 28 years, longer than any other wrestler.
He is better known as Jim or Jimmy Breaks, although he was christened James Breaks
As well as a prison sentence state prosecutors say if he's found guilty they want him to pay his alleged victim's family €60,000 (£53,370) in compensation.
Formal charges are only laid in Spain shortly before trial.
