The trial of a New Cross man charged with murder and arson has been rescheduled to September this year.

Richard Coore, 52, was due to appear at the Old Bailey this morning for a preliminary pre-trial hearing.

Coore, who is accused of murdering his 65-year old brother in September of last year, did not appear in court in person.

Firefighters found the body of Perseus Coore, from High Wycombe, when they were called to a fire at a second-floor flat in Filton Court, New Cross in September 2009. A post-mortem examination found he had died from multiple stab wounds.

Coore has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
