Man accused of 1966 murder of Yolande Waddington to face trial

PUBLISHED December 16, 2011

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. © 2011 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies. All rights reserved. | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds
