    Chris Youell, prosecution barrister, said there would be no application for bail today, so they were seeking a remand in custody through to the plea and trial preparation hearing on September 12.
    The court heard there would be “some sort of trial” in this case with a provisional date pencilled in for February 12 next year.


    Stephen Dyble, defence barrister, confirmed there would be some kind of trial but could not expand at this stage.
    Judge Stephen Holt said: “Mr Palmer, I hope you’ve understood what’s gone on this morning?
    “There will be a hearing in one month’s time (September 12). That’s a plea and case management hearing when we will sort out various matters about the trial.”
    Judge Holt confirmed that, at the moment, a trial date had been pencilled in for February next year. It is expected the trial might last two weeks.

    Alexander Palmer, 23, of Freesia Way, Cringleford, who served with the British Army between 2010 and 2015, was charged with murder and appeared at Norwich Crown Court this morning (Tuesday, September 12).

    It was supposed to be a plea and trial preparation hearing but defence barrister Paul Raudnitz lodged an application to adjourn the hearing until November 17.
    He said there was a “psychiatric” element to this case and an issue over fitness to plead. They were seeking a report which would take a few weeks.
