Colchester Murders Trial Due To Start
The trial is due to start today of a teenager charged with murdering James Attfield and Nahid Almanea in Colchester.
33 year-old James was found with more than 100 stab wounds in Castle Park in the early hours of Saturday, 29 March 2014. He later died in hospital.
31 year-old student Nahid, who was from Saudi Arabia, was attacked in broad daylight while walking to the University of Essex on the Salary Brook Trail on Tuesday, 17 June.
The teenager was arrested in May last year and in January admitted killing both James and Nahid, pleading guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
He denies murder however, and is due to stand trial at Guilford Crown Court.
The trial is expected to last just over a week.
Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year - nine at Chelmsford Prison.
