Boxer death murder trial adjourned
A man has appeared in court accused of murdering ex-boxer Shaun Cummins, whose body parts were found in a freezer.
Thomas Dunkley (28) was expected to enter a plea at Leicester Crown Court, but the case was adjourned.
The delay is due to a hold-up in the preparation of pathology and toxicology reports. The case was adjourned to December 14, when a plea and case management hearing is due to take place at the same court.
Dunkley, of no fixed address, was remanded back into custody by Judge Michael Pert QC.

Mr Cummins was found dead at his bungalow in Marriott Road, in Leicester's Saffron Lane estate.
Following a motorbike accident in 2004, the former boxer was left paralysed and bed- ridden, with no feeling from the chest down. He retired from boxing in 1995.
