Southern Telegraph - - CRIME -

A Rock­ing­ham man has pleaded not guilty to the mur­der of miss­ing mother Re­becca Anne De­la­lande.

Chris Blen­ner­has­sett ap­peared in Stir­ling Gar­dens Mag­is­trate’s Court via video link from prison last Wednesday.

The 46-year-old was charged with Miss De­la­lande’s mur­der in Novem­ber.

De­tec­tives opened a cold case in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the 23-year-old’s 2001 dis­ap­pear­ance last year and searched a Bayswa­ter in­dus­trial site.

Miss De­la­lande went miss­ing af­ter a den­tal ap­point­ment on Novem­ber 5, 2001. She was last seen at a home on For­tunella Grove in Seville Grove soon af­ter­wards.

Mr Blen­ner­has­sett pleaded not guilty when asked if he mur­dered Miss De­la­lande be­tween Novem­ber 6 and Novem­ber 10, 2001.

He was com­mit­ted for trial and will make his first ap­pear­ance at the WA Supreme Court on June 10.
