DOHA, Qatar – A court in Qatar trying an American couple charged with starving their adopted daughter to death has adjourned the case until February.
Matthew and Grace Huang say their African-born child died of medical problems complicated by anorexia-like bouts. Matthew Huang was working in the booming Gulf nation as part of infrastructure improvements for Qatar's hosting of the 2022 World Cup.
The Huangs were allowed to leave jail last month to pursue their legal battle. A judge Tuesday adjourned the case until February 5, and asked the defense to submit a written brief.
Eric Volz, managing director of the David House Agency that is coordinating legal and publicity efforts for the family, said he is disappointed by the delay and said the Huangs will continue to fight "to demonstrate their innocence."
