The man accused of killing High Wycombe businessman Peter Davis is likely to stand trial for his murder early next year.
Ambrose John Clarke, Mr Davis’ former business partner, was charged with his murder after the 57-year-old’s body was found wrapped in plastic in the boot of his car at the Great Eastern Motor Lodge.
Mr Clarke made a brief appearance in the Supreme Court this morning.
When asked by Justice Lindy Jenkins whether anyone else was likely to be charged and whether that would affect possible trial dates for Mr Clarke, prosecutors said it was unlikely.
Justice Jenkins adjourned the matter to another status conference on September 6, to allow time for the parties to meet and resolve any issues.
“I hope by the next status conference, there’ll be considerable progress,” she said.
The case has been provisionally listed for trial from March 5 next year,Mr Clarke’s bail was renewed for him to reappear in court on September 6.
