The trial of a 42-year-old Felixstowe man accused of engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour towards a woman is expected to take place in April.

Before Ipswich Crown court for a plea and trial preparation hearing via a prison video link on Friday (January 10) was Andrew Grinham, of Waveney Road, Felixstowe.

He pleaded not guilty to engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour towards the victim at a time when he was personally connected to her between March 1 and September 26 last year and causing her to fear on two occasions that violence would be used against her.
