New Year ‘killer’ set to face trial

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A MAN has pleaded not guilty to the New Year’s Day mur­der of a mum.

Char­lotte Hug­gins, 33, is be­lieved to have been the first per­son killed in the cap­i­tal in 2019 when she was stabbed in Cam­ber­well, south-east Lon­don, on Jan­uary 1.

Her boyfriend, Michael Rolle, 34, of Dul­wich, south-east Lon­don, en­tered a not guilty plea to her mur­der at the Old Bai­ley yes­ter­day.

Ms Hug­gins was found at a prop­erty in John Ruskin Street at around 4.20am on New Year’s Day, where paramedics tried to save her, but she was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem exam showed she had suf­fered a sin­gle stab wound.

Rolle, who ap­peared in court via video-link from Thame­side prison, will face a three-week trial at the Old Bai­ley.
