Greek police have arrested a 33-year-old Serb on Tuesday after judicial authorities issued an arrest warrant for him in connection with the murder of American tourist Bakari Henderson on the Greek island of Zakynthos.

This brings the total number of those detained to 9.

The hearings for the original 8, six Serbs, a British citizen of Serb origin and a Greek were postponed for Wednesday and Thursday.

All are being held in custody and have been charged with intentional homicide, which carries a maximum life sentence.

The eight will appear before an investigating judge, who will decide whether to keep them in custody pending trial or release them on bail.

22-year-old Bakari Henderson, of Austin, Texas, was beaten to death early Friday outside a bar in Zakynthos’ rowdy tourist area of Lagana. It was unclear what sparked the fight.

Greek authorities said he suffered multiple blows, and died from severe blows to the head.
