Hereford man Gary 'Stretch' Richards faces charges connected to triple murder
A MAN facing two counts of attempted murder - relating to incidents in Hereford in April - is due to stand trial at Cambridge Crown Court today facing three separate charges connected to a triple murder committed in Peterborough.
Gary ‘Stretch’ Richards, 47, formerly of Hereford and Kington, denies three counts of preventing burial, relating to the murder of three men in Peterborough - Kevin Lee, Lukasz Slaboszewski and John Chapman.
The bodies of the men were found between March 30 and April 3 last year.
