Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
