A man accused of the murder of Emma Baum in Gwynedd is set to go on trial in November.
David Nicholas Davies was charged last week with killing the mother-of-one in Penygroes. Her body was found with serious head injuries in the garden of her home on Llwyndu Road.
Davies (25), from Clynnog Fawr near Trefor, spoke only to confirm his name when he appeared at Mold Crown Court on Tuesday morning. No application for bail was made and he did not enter any plea.
Ms Baum’s relatives were in the public gallery while Davies sat silently, flanked by two security guards.
Judge Keith Thomas, appearing via videolink from Swansea Crown Court, remanded Davies in custody. A plea hearing will take place in October before the trial is due to begin at Caernarfon on Monday 7th November – it is due to last for a fortnight.
