A 36-year-old man accused of killing his partner in Milton Keynes has had a guilty plea for manslaughter rejected.

Blake Ross, from Tavelhurst, Two Mile Ash, appeared at Luton Crown Court for the plea hearing.

He pleaded not guilty to murdering Kim Jeffery, 36, on 10 April this year but admitted manslaughter.

Judge Michael Baker QC remanded Mr Ross in custody for a pre-trial hearing on 11 October and said his trial would begin in Luton on 31 October.

Ms Jeffery, also known as Kim Randall, died from stab wounds and facial injuries at the home she shared with Mr Ross.
