The case of a 28-year-old man charged with the murder of ex-boxer Shaun Cummins, whose body parts were found in a freezer, has been adjourned.

Thomas Dunkley appeared at Leicester Crown Court yesterday via a CCTV link from the prison in Welford Road.

No plea was entered and no application for bail was made.

Victoria Rose, prosecuting, said the results of a post-mortem examination were so far inconclusive.

She said: "The body parts had to be thawed before an autopsy could take place."

Mr Cummins's body was found at his bungalow in Marriott Road, in Leicester's Saffron Lane estate, last Wednesday.

He is believed to have died sometime after Saturday, September 1.

The former boxer was left paralysed in a motorbike accident in 2004.

Dunkley was arrested in Wakefield and charged with murder on Friday.

Judge Michael Pert QC adjourned today's hearing for seven days, for a preliminary hearing and for a possible trial date to be identified.

He told Dunkley he was to remain on remand in custody in the meantime.
