The man suspected of murdering Watford bin man Gary Bennett will face trial at St Albans Crown Court next week.

Mr Bennett was found with severe head injuries in Aldenham Country Park, on February 24.

Julian Felisi, 37, was arrested and charged with his murder in March and has remained in police custody.

Mr Felisi, of Whippendell Road, Watford, pleaded not guilty to the charge at a hearing in May and a two week trial is scheduled to begin on Monday.

The pair both worked as bin men for Watford Borough Council, at the Wiggenhall Road depot.
