Charles Jessop is accused of killing 33-year-old Clare Nash at a flat in Brickfields Avenue, Newmarket on January 16.

Previously a court heard how police officers were called to a property in the Suffolk town shortly after 9.35pm by Miss Nash’s roommate, who said a man had threatened her with a knife.

Miss Nash was found with severe injuries and was treated by officers alongside paramedics but nothing could be done to save her.

The mother-of-two was later pronounced dead by Air Ambulance medics.
