A Rotherham man accused of murder and rape is due to stand trial tomorrow.

John Heald (53) is expected to go before Hull Crown Court for the murder of guesthouse landlady Bei Carter in Bridlington last July.

Heald, of Foljambe Road, Rotherham, also faces with three counts of rape in connection with alleged attacks in South Yorkshire on July 13.

Mrs Carter (49) died from a stab wound at the guesthouse.
