Winehouse husband trial date set

Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil
Mr Fielder-Civil will remain in custody until his trial

The trial of singer Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil will begin in June, a court has decided.

Mr Fielder-Civil, 25, from Camden, north London, is accused of assault and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. He denies both offences.

He will remain in custody until his trial begins on 2 June at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

Four other men also deny conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. The singer did not attend the hearing.

Mr Fielder-Civil is accused of attacking pub landlord James King at the Macbeth public house in Hoxton, east London, in June 2006.

He is also alleged to have plotted with Mr King to pervert the course of justice.

Mr King, 36, from Risley, Derbyshire, Michael Brown, 25, from Carshalton, Surrey, Anthony Kelly, 25, from Chalk Farm, north London and James Kennedy, 19, from Hatfield, Hertfordshire, also denied the conspiracy charge at an earlier hearing.
