Provisional date set for murder trial
Plea hearing adjourned
A PROVISIONAL trial date of October 11 has been set in the case of a man accused of murdering a woman in Royston.
Tomas Navickas, 31, is charged with the murder of Svetlana Olsevka, 43, at a house in Ermine Close, Royston, where they both lived.
Navickas appeared at Luton crown court today, where proceedings were translated for him by a Russian interpreter.
Steven Garratt, defending, asked for an adjournment before a plea was taken from Navickas, as he said medical reports needed to be obtained from Russia.
