King to stand trial for sexual assault
Thursday 14 May 2009
Jamaica striker Marlon King will go on trial in October over allegations that he sexually assaulted and punched a woman in a London nightclub last year.
The 29-year-old Wigan striker, who was on loan at Hull at the time, is accused of attacking the 20-year-old woman at the Soho Revue Bar.
The trial was scheduled at a hearing in London on today and will run five days from 26 October.
King made the 320-kilometer (200-mile) trip to London to celebrate scoring the winner for Hull against Middlesbrough.
He has since joined Middlesbrough on loan until the end of the season.
