French rock star to stay in prison

September 05, 2003|From Associated Press

A French rock star held in Lithuania on suspicion of manslaughter in the beating death of his actress girlfriend will stay in prison through Oct. 14, a Lithuanian judge ruled Thursday.

Bertrand Cantat, the lead singer of the popular rock band Noir Desir, has been held in Lithuania since late July after his girlfriend, actress Marie Trintignant, was found beaten and in a coma. She later died.

His lawyer, Virginijus Leonas Papirtis, had sought Cantat's release, noting the singer's poor health and saying he wasn't a flight risk.
