Peterborough: Man Denies 70's Murder

A man has pleaded not guilty to murdering a woman from Peterborough more than 30 years ago

Paul Taylor, 59, of Valentine Close, Fareham, Hampshire appeared via videolink before Southwark Crown Court today where he denied murdering Sally McGrath. 

22 year old Sally was last seen alive at about 3pm on July 11th, 1979.  

Her body was found nearly eight months later on March 1, 1980, in Wild Boar Spinney, at Castor Hanglands, to the west of Peterborough.

Taylor also pleaded not guilty to four serious sexual assaults in the late 70s.

Miss McGrath had been living with her parents and brother in Towler Street, Peterborough, when she vanished.

Cambridgeshire Police re-opened inquiries into her death following a cold case review in 2010.

Taylor's trial is due to begin in October.
