A man charged with murdering St Neots scientist Samantha Ho has appeared in court.
Timothy Allen appeared via video link at Cambridge Crown Court today (Friday), speaking only to confirm his name.
The 40-year-old, from Curlew Place, was arrested after the body of Ms Ho, 39, was discovered at the couple’s house on August 29.
A post mortem concluded that Ms Ho died from multiple cuts to the neck. It is understood that she was beheaded.
Allen was taken to hospital with serious injuries and failed to appear at the first hearing, at Old Bailey, in London, due to illness.
Friday’s hearing was adjourned by judge Mark Lucraft pending further reports.
A plea and case management hearing has been scheduled for December 16, with Allen remanded in custody.
