Lawyers for Pfc Joseph Scott Pemberton sought the suspension of the trial.

Attorneys for relatives of Jennifer Laude say they will seek Pemberton’s detention in a local jail during the trial, AP reported.

However, the US Embassy has already rejected a request by the Philippines government to take custody of Pemberton.

The Marine was brought from the camp to Olongapo early Friday under heavy guard.
