A 40-year-old man appeared in court this morning charged with the murder of a disabled man found dead at his home in Fakenham.
Anthony Griffiths, 60, was found dead at his ground floor flat in Hall Close on Monday. A post mortem revealed he died from a stab wound.
Neil Hirrel spoke only to confirm his name, age and address during the brief hearing at King's Lynn Magistrates' Court, after he was charged with Mr Griffiths's murder.
Wearing a plain grey sweater, the stocky, unshaven Hirrel seemed calm throughout the proceedings, chewing gum while prosecutor Susanna Chowdhury outlined the case against him.
