A musician will today face a retrial for the murder of special needs teacher Jane Longhurst.

Graham Coutts, 39, of Waterloo Street, Hove, denies strangling Miss Longhurst, 31, in March 2003.

Miss Longhurst's body was found on Wiggonholt Common, near Pulborough.

A jury was sworn in yesterday to hear the case at the Old Bailey.
