A man accused of beheading his wife pleaded not guilty when he appeared at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday via video link.

Timothy Allen, 40, pleaded not guilty to murdering Samantha Ho – who worked for bio-science firm Asterand in Royston – at the home they shared in St Neots on August 29.

A post mortem concluded that Ms Ho, 39, died from multiple cuts to the neck. It is understood that she was beheaded.

Mr Allen, of Curlew Place, was taken to hospital with serious injuries after the incident and failed to appear at his first hearing due to illness.

The case is set for a 10-day trial at Cambridge Crown Court on February 22 next year.
