The trial of a man accused of murdering Gordon McGhee in Colchester will take place in February next year.

Before Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing via a prison video link on Tuesday (December 4) was Danny Bostock, 32, of Berberis Walk, Colchester, who is accused of murder and attempted arson being reckless as to whether life would be endangered.

The charges relate to the death of Gordon McGhee, aged 52, from Colchester, who was found dead inside a flat in Forest Road in the Greenstead area of Colchester in the early hours of Wednesday, August 22.

A post-mortem examination was held on August 24 and established the provisional cause of death to be from multiple stab wounds.

Judge Martyn Levett adjourned the case until February 11 when Bostock’s trial is expected to get underway.
