Murder trial delayed again as teenage boy still unwell


THE trial of a 17-year-old boy accused of murdering a Warrington woman has been postponed again due to his ill health.

The teenager, who cannot be identified because of his age, was due to stand trial beginning on June 24 but a judge agreed today (Wed) that this should be delayed.

Chintzia McIntyre, aged 48, was found outside her home in Phoenix Place, Chapelford, at about 9.40 am on August 29 last year having been seriously assaulted.
She was pronounced dead at the scene after police, paramedics and an air ambulance had been called.

Her alleged attacker was not produced at Liverpool Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing today and a joint application was made by the prosecution and defence to adjourn the hearing as he is still unwell.

Judge Andrew Menary KC adjourned the case until June 24 for a further pre-trial review.
The court heard that the youth is currently detained at Rowan View Hospital in Maghull. His trial had initially been listed to be heard in January.
