A woman accused of murdering a man at a block of flats in Allerton, Bradford, is to contest the allegation, a court heard today.
The court heard she faced a charge of murdering Scott Dunne, at Rosemary Gardens, Allerton.
Mr Dunne, 41, died at the scene from serious head injuries after being discovered at the flat in the early hours of Saturday.
