Harry Dunn’s alleged killer, Anne Sacoolas, will no longer face a court hearing, to enable “ongoing discussions” with the Crown Prosecution Service to continue.
The CPS previously said in a statement that the 44-year-old’s case would be heard at Westminster magistrates court on Tuesday, but the hearing has now been vacated.
Sacoolas is accused of causing death by dangerous driving after a fatal road crash outside US military base RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August 2019.
The suspect had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf by the US government after the collision, and was able to leave the UK 19 days after the incident.
