Trial postponed for man accused of murdering teenage girl

A murder suspect charged with killing a teenage girl in Windsor more than 30 years ago has had his trial put back.

Colin Frederick Campbell was set to appear at Reading Crown Court on June 10, but will now do so on November 11.

His defence team had an application to break the fixture accepted at the same court by a judge last week.

The 65-year-old is in police custody and will enter his plea on the first day of the trial.

Campbell is accused of murdering 17-year-old Claire Woolterton on August 28, 1981, who was found stabbed and strangled on a towpath alongside Barry Avenue.
