Stratford Editorial 1st Aug, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE TRIAL of two people accused of murdering a young Stratford woman at an address in the town is set to start this week.

Last month, Kayleigh-Louise Woods, 22, of Hertford Road, and Jack Williams, 21, of Redlands Crescent both pleaded not guilty to the murder of Bethany Hill at an address in Hertford Road earlier this year.

An earlier plea and case management hearing at the court was adjourned owing to mental health concerns in relation to Williams but he has since been found fit to plead.

It is understood Bethany died at an address in Hertford Road some time during the afternoon of February 3.

The police and emergency service crews were called to the address, where she was found with neck wounds at around 7pm, but she was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

The trial is expected to take place at Warwick Crown Court from Monday (August 1).
