Jack Wall, 22, was due to appear before a judge at Luton Crown Court via a video link from Peterborough Prison for a preliminary hearing but was unable to do so.

Judge Richard Foster said the link wasn’t working and “couldn’t be revived this afternoon”.

Wall is charged with the murder of Amelia Arnold, who he lived with at Hadrian’s Walk in Stevenage.

The 19-year-old’s body was discovered in woodland in Hatfield in November.

The case was adjourned until February 27 at Luton Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing.
