David Burgess, 64, who was charged with the killing last month, is remanded in custody after appearing at Reading crown court
A 64-year-old man accused of murdering a teenage girl 45 years ago is expected to face trial next summer.
The body of Yolande Waddington, a 17-year-old nanny, was found in the village of Beenham in Berkshire in 1966.
David Burgess was charged last month with murdering Yolande, who had arrived in the village only a few days before she was killed.
White-haired, bespectacled Burgess spoke only to confirm his name when he appeared at Reading crown court on Friday. He was remanded in custody.
He is expected to enter a plea in February and a provisional trial date has been set for 13 June.
