The trial of a man from Brierley Hill, who's been accused of killing his girlfriend on the Greek island of Crete, will begin today. Luke Walker has been charged with murdering Chelsea Hyndman, from Castleford in Yorkshire.

The pair lived and worked on the island. Miss Hyndman died from abdominal injuries three years ago. Mr Walker denies murder and says she died after a fall during a night out with friends in the resort of Malia.

After her death, Mr Walker was jailed on remand for five months and kept in Greece until October last year, when his trial was unexpectedly adjourned. He was then allowed to return home to the Midlands. The hearing is expected to last at least four days.
