A man accused of murdering a 48-year-old at a Norwich car park has refused to have any more psychiatric tests before his trial.

Police officers were called to Rose Lane car park just after midnight on June 23 last year to reports a man had been stabbed.

The victim, David Hastings, formerly of Long Row, Norwich, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where he died.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Hastings died as a result of multiple stab wounds.
