Peterborough: Man in court in 32 year old murder case

A man has appeared in court accused of murdering a woman from Peterborough 32 years ago.

Paul Taylor, 59, of Valentine Close, Fareham, Hampshire, has been charged with the murder of Sally McGrath and also charged with three counts of rape, one serious sexual assault and an indecent assault, all in the first half of 1979.

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.

A post mortem examination revealed she died from a head injury but it is not known what caused the injury.

Mr Taylor was remanded in custody and is due to appear at Norwich Crown Court on Thursday, 13th of October, for a bail application and a preliminary hearing.
