A MAN accused of murder is expected to give his plea when he next appears at crown court.

Andrew Lambert, 39, of Hemel Hempstead, will be at Reading Crown Court on Tuesday, January 10.

The date was set following a plea and case management meeting at the court, when Lambert was not present, on Monday.

He was charged in September with the murder of Ryan Cronin who was stabbed to death in Amersham.

Mr Cronin, aged 41, was found dead in a flat in Quarrendon Road, Amersham, on Friday August 5.

A tribute statement issued by police said that Ryan’s mother and father, and his three brothers, were devastated by his death.

Lambert initially appeared before Aylesbury Magistrates’ Court on Friday, September 23 before the trial was sent to crown court.
