York murder accused back in court
5:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
A FORMER soldier accused of murdering a York estate agency worker has today made his first appearance at Leeds Crown Court.
Jeremy Peter Andrew Green, 25 appeared before York Magistrates’ Court last week after he was charged with the murder of Nicole Waterhouse, 32, and the attempted murder of her colleague Karen Browne, 23.
Both women were sales negotiators for Hunters Estate Agency. Miss Waterhouse suffered fatal injuries at a flat in Phoenix Boulevard close to the National Railway Museum in Leeman Road last month.
Miss Browne was found with serious injuries but the court was told has now been able to give a short interview on DVD to police.
Green, 25, was flanked in the secure dock by prison officers as arrangements for the case were discussed, before he was further remanded in custody.
The Recorder of Leeds, Judge Peter Collier QC told him: “The time-table for this case is now set.
The next hearing at this court is likely to be on the 31st of January when you will be expected to make a plea on these charges.”
“The trial date has been set for April 7 and by January 10 you must set out in detail in writing what your defence is and what you say about the prosecution allegations.”
Green, of Popeshead Court in Peter Lane, York, stepped down as a platoon commander with the Yorkshire Regiment in April this year.
