A 35-year-old woman has pleaded not guilty to murdering her partner and will stand trial at Bradford Crown Court on July 7.

Alexia Heckles publicly denied murdering father-of-three Scott Dunne, 41, at a case management hearing yesterday.

Mr Dunne was found fatally wounded from a single knife wound in a bedroom of a flat (pictured) in Rosemary Gardens, Allerton, Bradford, on January 18.

Rodney Ferm, barrister for Heckles, said there was a long list of witnesses to give evidence at the trial. He estimated it would last up to ten days.

Heckles was remanded back into custody until the trial date by the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC.
