A NEW trial date has been set for the man accused of murdering Farnworth mum Kelly Davies, pictured.
Joseph Davies, aged 36, of no fixed address, denies murdering his ex-partner Ms Davies, aged 31, on June 2, 2012.
Her body was found on June 4, last year in her home in Queen Street, Farnworth.
Davies is due to stand trial on September 9. The trial is expected to last for more than a week.
The jury covering Davies murder trial earlier this month was unable to reach a verdict.
Davies will next appear at Manchester Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing on June 27.
