A man has appeared in court to deny the manslaughter of a 40-year-old woman who was found dead at a flat in Hull.

Dawn Warburton's body was discovered at the property in Westbourne Avenue on 13 April 2013. Police said she had died from "compression of the neck".

At Hull Crown Court, Mark Pickford also pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

He was released on bail ahead of a trial set to begin at the same court on 16 June.
