The trial of a 78-year-old man accused of attempted murder following a shooting last year will take place in April.

Before Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday (January 7) for a plea and trial preparation hearing was Kier Huxtable, of Stanford Road, Weeting, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

He pleaded not guilty to attempting to murder David Wright on October 11 last year and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life on the same date.

Police were called just after 7.10pm on Friday, October 11 to reports of a shooting in Pond Lane, Brandon.

A man aged in his 40s had been shot in the upper arm, sustaining non-life-threatening injuries.

Huxtable, whose trial is due to get underway on April 15, was remanded in custody.
