A 47-year-old man accused of murdering 51-year-old Rodney Parlour in Rainham flat last month will stand trial at The Old Bailey in March next year.

Mark Croxson, of no fixed abode, has been charged with the murder in Hood Road on or before September 30 – the date Mr Parlour’s body was discovered by police after a concerned neighbour raised the alarm.

Mr Croxson was indicted for the alleged offence at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, before appearing for an initial hearing at The Old Bailey on Tuesday.

A plea and trial preparation hearing will take place at the famous court on December 22, with a trial set to begin on March 12 2018 if Mr Croxson pleads not guilty.
