A 39-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to murdering a pet shop worker in Northampton 22 years ago.

Stuart Jenkins, aged 39, of Ryecroft Street, Ossett, appeared at Northampton Crown Court today (Monday) after he was charged with the murder of 76-year-old Arthur Brumhill at the Paul Denton Pet and Garden Centre in Wellingborough Road between January 20 and January 23, 1993.

Jenkins, wearing a suit, spoke only to enter his not guilty plea.

Judge Rupert Mayo adjourned the case until a pre-trial review in December. The trial is likely to take place in May next year.

Jenkins was remanded in custody.
