A grandfather accused of the murder of his own nine-year-old grandson two days before Christmas Day is to face trial later this month.
Stewart James Greene is alleged to have murdered his grandson Alex Robinson, on December 23, 2014.
Greene, 65, of Danes Court, Grimoldby, near Louth, had pleaded not guilty to murder at an earlier hearing.
Today (Thursday) following a hearing at Lincoln Crown Court the case was listed for a two week trial due to begin at Lincoln on Tuesday, November 17.
Greene was remanded in custody until the trial date.
Greene was arrested on December 23 after emergency services were called to the terraced house in Pennell Street, Lincoln, where Alex lived with his mother.
Alex was rushed to Lincoln County Hospital by ambulance but died shortly afterwards.
