A man has had his conviction for the murder of a teacher formally quashed by the Court of Appeal.
Jane Longhurst was a special needs teacher and musician in Brighton
Graham Coutts, 36, from Hove, East Sussex, was jailed for life in 2004 for murdering 31-year-old Jane Longhurst, who was from Brighton.
The three appeal judges said on Thursday that Mr Coutts should be recharged on a fresh indictment within two months and then retried.
A re-trial will take place at the Old Bailey on a date to be fixed.
Mr Coutts was remanded in custody pending a retrial, but he will be able to make a bail application to the Old Bailey.
Miss Longhurst was originally from Reading, Berkshire.
Her body was found on Wiggonholt Common, near Pulborough, West Sussex, on 19 April, 2003.
