A 30-year-old man accused of a New Year’s Day murder is set to stand trial later this year.

Ricardas Mazeika of Laughton Road, Boston, denied the murder of 41-year-old Deimantas Strelciunas when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court today (Wednesday).

Mazeika was remanded in custody by Judge Michael Heath and the hearing was adjourned for trial on a date to be arranged.

The charge follows an incident which led to police and paramedics being called to an address in St Ann’s Wharf, Boston.

Mr Strelciunas was pronounced dead at the scene.
