Rebecca Thompson murder: Father, Simon Thompson's trial delayed over medical reports
The trial of a Bushey father charged with the murder of his 11-year-old daughter has been delayed to allow full medical reports to be carried out.
Judge Andrew Bright QC decided to push the trial of Simon Thompson back to January while psychiatric and neurological assessments are conducted.
The 52-year-old was charged with murder after Rebecca Thompson was found strangled to death at their address in Homefield Road, in June.
His trial was originally set for October 7. Mr Thompson remains remanded in custody.
