The trial of Mexican actor Pablo Lyle in Miami for the death of a man with whom he argued over a traffic issue scheduled for August was postponed again for a date that has not yet been established, judicial sources reported Wednesday.
Similarly, a hearing that was scheduled for this Thursday was postponed.
The trial of the actor, who is under house arrest in South Florida, accused of involuntary manslaughter, was scheduled for August 2.
On March 31, 2019, Lyle beat 63-year-old Cuban Juan Ricardo Hernández, who four days later died in a hospital.
That day Lyle was on his way to the Miami airport along with his son in a vehicle driven by his brother-in-law, Lucas Delfino, when they came across the car driven by Hernández.
At a traffic light, the Cuban got out to recriminate Delfino for a maneuver he had made.
In the middle of that discussion, Lyle got out of the car and hit Hernández, who, according to images collected by security cameras from a nearby gas station, collapsed instantly.
The sixty-year-old died four days later in a hospital.
A Miami-Dade County forensic report revealed that Hernandez died of “complications from blunt trauma to the head” and indicated “homicide” as the probable cause of death.
Lyle’s defense unsuccessfully appealed a lower court ruling by Judge Alan Fine, who denied him applying to his case a Florida self-defense law known as “Stand Your Ground” that would save him from going to judgment.
The actor, married to Ana Araújo, with whom he has a son, was arrested shortly after the events and was initially paroled with a bail of 5,000 dollars.
Following Hernández’s death, he was charged with manslaughter and placed under house arrest.
