A DATE has been set for the trial of a Hanbury man who is accused of murdering a woman.

Lian Wild, 22 and from School Road, is accused of killing 43-year-old Karen Wild who is also from School Road.

Police and paramedics were called to Mrs Wild’s home about 4.30pm on Thursday (January 30) following reports of a woman with a number of stab wounds.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Today’s (Tuesday) preliminary hearing at Worcester Crown Court was dealt with in the absence of Wild after his honour Judge Juckes QC was told he was too unwell to appear.

He is set to stand trial at Birmingham Crown Court on July 28 following permission from the circuit judge and will remain in custody.
