An Australian citizen, Singh is 12 after a four-year search that began shortly after he boarded a plane from Australia, just hours after Corddley’s body was found half-buried in the sand dunes of Wangetti Beach. He was arrested by the Delhi Police in May.

Australian police want to question Singh about whether he stabbed Cordingley after an altercation in which her dog barked at him.

Police said a 24-year-old pharmacy worker suffered “visible violent injuries”.

Her dog was tied up nearby.

At an earlier hearing, Singh made a statement, saying he hopes to return to Australia to fight the charges and realizes he could face life in prison if convicted.

His wife and three children are in Australia, where Singh worked as a nurse in Innisfail.
