The trial of a Grimoldby grandfather accused of the murder of his own nine-year-old grandson began this morning (November 17), with the jury sworn in and the prosecution opening their case.

Stewart James Greene is alleged to have murdered his grandson Alex Robinson on December 23, 2014.

Greene, 65, of Danes Court, Grimoldby, had pleaded not guilty to murder at an earlier hearing.

The trial is expected to take around two weeks.

Greene was arrested on 23 December after emergency services were called to the terraced house Pennell Street, Lincoln, where Alex lived with his mother.

Alex was rushed to Lincoln County Hospital by ambulance but died shortly afterwards.
