Plumber to face manslaughter trial

A plumber is set to stand trial for manslaughter in June following the death of a young woman from carbon monoxide poisoning in a shared ownership flat.

Paul Williamson, 51, of Chaucer Gardens, Sutton, denied the manslaughter charge at a plea and case management hearing at the Old Bailey.

He pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of Elouise Littlewood on or about February 27, 2008, as well as the grievous bodily harm of Ms Littlewood’s lodger, Simon Kilby.

He also denies breaching regulation 26 (9) of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 19.

Mr Williamson will now appear before the Old Bailey on June 6, 2011. He has been released on bail on the condition that he does not leave the UK without police permission.
