The preliminary hearing of a man accused of killing a mother-of-two from Newmarket has been adjourned for a month for further case management.

Charles Jessop, 28, of Bakers Row, Newmarket, is accused of killing 33-year-old Clare Nash at a flat in Brickfields Avenue, Newmarket on January 16.

A court previously heard how police officers were called just after 9.30pm on Thursday, January 16 to reports a woman had been stabbed in a property in Brickfields Avenue.

Emergency services attended but the woman, Ms Nash, was found with severe injuries and was pronounced dead by air ambulance medics.

Jessop appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday, June 22 and has been remanded in custody, as he is still yet to enter a plea.
