A trial date has been set for a Forest Gate man accused murdering a 28-year-old who was found dead in a house.

Irvingas Makasejevas, 40, of Sebert Road, appeared at the Old Bailey yesterday where he pleaded not guilty to murdering Edgaras Kondrotas.

A trial is set to begin at the same court on Monday, July 4.

Mr Kondrotas, a Lithuanian national who lived in Goodmayes, was believed to have been involved in an altercation in Leyton High Road on Monday, January 11 – the day before he was found dead at a house in Forest Gate.
