TWO people charged with the murder of a teenager whose body was found in a recycling truck go on trial next week.
The decomposed body of 17-year-old Nathan Lyons, from Birmingham, was found at Viridor Waste, Century Wharf, Crayford, on the afternoon of May 13 last year.
Amanda Allden, 29 of Epsom Close, Catshill, Worcestershire, and Scott Hancox, 34, of Fownhope Close, Redditch, Worcestershire, were charged with the murder last year.
Their trial is scheduled to begin at Worcestershire Crown Court next Thursday when the jury are due to be sworn in. The case is predicted to last approximately six weeks and will be heard before High Court judge Sir David Penrey-Davey.
