Meanwhile, prosecutors chose to include in their outline of the stolen coins case some fascinating travel records.
These show that Mr Bennett and Isabella flew to St Maarten in March this year — ten months after the ‘burglary’ on the yacht Kitty R — and again at the end of April.
(In fact Florida law says nobody can be declared legally dead until he or she has been missing for at least five years.)The latest colourful allegations about plundered boats and stolen treasure have, of course, only deepened the riddle over Ms Hellmann’s fate.
Isabella’s disappearance remains officially under investigation, although no law enforcement agency has said whether or not Mr Bennett is a suspect.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years' imprisonment and was brought by the FBI as it investigates the disappearance of Isabella Hellmann, the mother of Bennett's baby.
Rescuers found the British-Australian dual citizen alone in his life raft on May 15 after he made an SOS call to say Ms Hellmann, 41, was missing and his 37-ft catamaran was taking on water.
He was floating in a life raft 1,000 yards from the now half-submerged boat, which he had abandoned after first gathering his possessions.
He said he believed the catamaran had hit something.
Mr Bennett, who was remanded in custody by a court in Key West at the end of August, faced calls from the prosecution at another hearing that he be denied bail because he’s a flight risk.
Bennett said that his wife, Isabella Hellmann, had been given the helm and left alone in charge of the vessel.
