FOUR men accused of murdering a traveller whose decapitated body was discovered slumped against a garage are set to go on trial today (Thursday).

The headless and handless corpse of John Finney was found in Ickleford on March 14 last year.

The 42-year-old father-of-four had not been seen since disappearing from his Mitsubishi 4x4, near his home at Park Farm in Northaw Road West, two weeks earlier.

The four defendants are all accused of playing a part in Mr Finney's murder.
