Man who denies charge of murder has his trial date set
A 70-YEAR-OLD man charged with the murder of a popular Chalfont St Peter pensioner has made another crown court appearance.
Odysseas Vafiadis, of Birchdale, Gerrards Cross, stands accused of the murder of 69-year-old Paul Davidson and appeared at Reading Crown Court on Thursday July 14.
The court confirmed on Monday that he denied the charge against him.
His trial date has been set for September 5 and is estimated to last three weeks.
The murder charge is in connection with the death of Mr Davidson in an alleged road rage attack in Market Place, Chalfont St Peter, in November last year.
Mr Davidson, from Chalfont St Peter, died on Monday November 9, following an alleged assault three days earlier on November 6.
He was alleged to have been walking along Market Place before he crossed the road on a zebra crossing in front of a car.
The driver of the car stopped and a fight is alleged to have taken place between the driver and Mr Davidson.
The driver then got back into the car, believed to have been a white Skoda Yeti, and drove away towards Gerrards Cross.
Vafiadis first appeared at Reading Crown Court on November 16.
