Bill Spedding seeks stay

WILLIAM "Bill" Harrie Spedding, who was previously interrogated over the disappearance of toddler William Tyrell, will seek a stay of his trial on unrelated allegations of child sexual abuse in NSW.

The 65-year-old is due to face the NSW Supreme Court early next year over the alleged abuse of two girls in Sydney in the 1980s.

His lawyer has told a Victorian court he would seek a stay of the NSW trial in September.

Spedding also faces seven new charges for allegedly sexually abusing children in Victoria during the 1980s, for which he is due to face trial in Victoria.

The white goods repairman was questioned over the 2014 disappearance of three-year-old William Tyrell in Kendall, near Port Macquarie.

Spedding has repeatedly denied having had any hand in his disappearance.
