Suspect in 'bedsit murders' pleads not guilty
Wendy Knell was killed in 1987

David Fuller, 66, is accused of killing Wendy Knell, 25, and Caroline Pierce, 20, a crime which became one of Britain’s longest unsolved double murders.

The two young women were killed on separate dates in 1987. Both had been living in bedsits at the time of their death.

At Maidstone Crown Court this week [January 21], David Fuller pleaded not guilty to killing Wendy Knell in June 1987 and Caroline Pierce in November of the same year.

The 66-year-old from Heathfield, East Sussex was told his trial has been delayed until October this year due to the Covid crisis. He was set to stand trial in July.

He has been remanded in custody.
