A man charged with threatening behaviour less than a week after being found not guilty of murder will appear in court later this month.

John Monk, 44, of Albini Way, Wymondham, is accused of using threatening words towards another man on Bridewell Street in Wymondham on Boxing Day at about 12.45pm.

He has been released on bail and was to appear before Norwich Magistrates Court today (January 16) although will now be in court on January 30.

On December 20 last year John Monk was cleared of murdering 26-year-old Nick Rogers who died in hospital the day after he was attacked in Morrisons supermarket in Wymondham on July 17 last year.

Following a trial at Norwich Crown Court John's nephew Lee Monk, 20, was found guilty of manslaughter.
