A date has been set for the trial of a woman accused of murdering her mother.

Kauthar Silvera, 29, will face Oxford Crown Court on February 11.

She was refused a bid yesterday to have the provisional date of the court case moved on health grounds.

She was not present during the pre-trial review.

The Friars Wharf resident is charged with killing 52-year-old Vittoria Baker.

Ms Baker’s body was found in her flat in Friars Wharf, St Ebbe’s, on Thursday, August 16.

A postmortem examination found she died as a result of a stab wound.
