A pensioner today (Friday) denied the murder of his 61-year-old neighbour in Boston.

Vidmantas Svedarauskas, 67, entered a not guilty plea during a pre-trial hearing at Lincoln Crown Court.

Speaking through a Lithuanian interpreter, Svedarauskas denied the murder of Manfred Jaedke between 6 and 9 July, this year.

Mr Jaedke, a German national who had lived in the UK for a number of years, was found dead at his home in Porcher Way, Boston.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned the case for trial at Lincoln Crown Court on 12 June next year. It is expected to last five days.

Svedarauskas, of Porcher Way, Boston, was remanded in custody until his trial.
