Man denies murder charge
A SALISBURY man is facing a murder charge after a man he attacked in the city centre in 2007 died three years later.
Adam Stuart Cross, of Brown Street, attacked Joseph Starzacher in a post-pub street brawl in July 2007.
He was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and handed a life sentence with a minimum term of six years in January 2008.
Mr Starzacher, who was left in a vegetative state, died of pneumonia in August 2010 and Cross, 33, now faces a charge of murder.
He has pleaded not guilty and a trial date was set for March 14 next year at a hearing held at Winchester Crown Court on Friday.
Cross was remanded in custody.
