Have your say

A MAN accused of murdering his mother will stand trial at Lincoln Crown Court on Monday, November 21.

John Thorpe, 53, of Reedings Road, Barrowby, denies the murder of Mary Thorpe between March 30 and April 3 of this year.

The body of 80-year-old Mary Thorpe was found on the morning of Saturday, April 2, at the house in Reedings Road which she shared with her son.

Thorpe was detained by police later the same day in the Swansea area of South Wales.

He appeared at the crown court this week, where a judge adjourned the trial.

The defendant was remanded in custody.
