Sacoolas reportedly hit the 19-year-old Briton with her car back in August, as she was driving on the wrong side of the road. The young man died, and Sacoolas fled the UK for the US, claiming diplomatic immunity from prosecution.
A court hearing for Anne Sacoolas, the wife of a CIA agent, and suspected killer of Harry Dunn, has been postponed, prosecutors said on Friday.
According to the British authorities, the hearing was "vacated" (removed from the schedule) "to enable ongoing discussions between the CPS and Anne Sacoolas's legal representatives to continue".
She escaped prosecution by fleeing to her home country, claiming diplomatic immunity. The US has since refused to extradite her to face trial in Britain. Sacoolas later admitted that she had been driving on the wrong side of the road, while reports suggested that she might have been distracted by her phone before the incident.
The suspect is the wife of CIA agent Jonathan Sacoolas, who at the time worked at RAF Croughton, a military base operated by the US Air Force. A spokesperson for the Dunn family, Radd Seiger, also suggested that the woman was working for US intelligence.
