A son of late dictator Moamer Kadhafi appeared in a Libyan court Sunday over the murder of a football coach in 2005 and alleged repression in the uprising that toppled his father.
Saadi Kadhafi, 42, sat alone in a caged dock of the courtroom located in the same complex as the Al-Hadba prison where he is being held in Tripoli.
Dressed in a prison-issued blue uniform, the one-time playboy looked straight ahead and showed no emotions as the hearing got underway.

The judge said more time was needed to complete the investigation into the charges levelled against Saadi, and adjourned the trial until February 1.
Saadi was best known as the head of Libya’s football federation and a player who paid his way into Italy’s top division.
Kadhafi’s third oldest son, he is accused of murdering a former trainer at Tripoli’s Al-Ittihad football club in 2005 and repressing during the 2011 armed uprising.
His trial opened in May but has been adjourned several times, the last time on November
