THE trial of a 35-year-old woman, who is charged with murdering her partner, will be held next month.

Alexia Heckles, of Rosemary Gardens, Allerton, Bradford, who denies murdering father-of-three Scott Dunne, 41, appeared at a pre-trial review hearing at Bradford Crown Court today.

Mr Dunne was discovered fatally wounded from a single knife wound in a bedroom of a flat in Rosemary Gardens, Allerton on January 18 this year.

Heckles pleaded not guilty to the charge at an earlier hearing. Her trial at the city's Crown Court will begin on July 7.

She was remanded back in custody until the trial date by the Honorary Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC.
