A murder trial following the death of a Worcestershire transgender woman has been delayed until next February because of the Covid-19 pandemic.


Fifty-three-year-old Martin Saberi stands accused of the murder of 51-year-old Amy Griffiths in January 2019.

His trial was originally scheduled to begin at Worcester Crown Court this week but was adjourned until 1 February 2021.


Ms Griffiths, who was described by friends as a 'hero' in the local LGBT community, was found dead in her flat in Droitwich on 14 January last year. Police said she had suffered head and throat injuries.
