A man has denied the murder of a 69-year-old man in Toftwood, when he appeared at a hearing at Norwich Crown Court.
Richard Beane, 49, of Brunswick Close, Dereham, pleaded not guilty to the murder of Brian Heed between February 1 and February 6, this year.
Judge Stephen Holt adjourned the case and told Beane that he would see him back in court for his trial.
Beane is due to stand trial on July 17 and the trial is expected to last about seven days.
Beane, who was wearing a casual grey polo short, was remanded in custody.
