A trial date has been set for a man charged with the murder of police community support officer Julia James.

Ms James, 53, was found with fatal head injuries next to Akholt Wood, Snowdown, near Dover, on 27 April.

Callum Wheeler, 21, from Aylesham is charged with her murder.

He was remanded into custody at Medway Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

Judge Philip Statman set a trial date for November 29 with a plea and trial preparation hearing on June 8.

Callum Wheeler, from Aylesham, is accused of inflicting serious head injuries on the 53-year-old while she was out walking her dog.

Judge Statman said: "There being no application for bail, in the circumstances having looked at all the matters, it is right and proper the defendant should remain in custody".

But Kent Police are still appealing for witnesses, and earlier this week created a reconstruction of Ms James last known movements featuring an actress wearing identical clothing to the PCSO and Toby the dog.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Kent Police Assistant Chief Constable Tom Richards said no further arrests were now anticipated.
