A woman who denies murdering her flatmate will face a five-week trial next week.

Edyta Zawadzka, 29, is charged with murdering her housemate Bernadeta Nawracaj, 43, at the flat in the Towers, where they lived in Richmond.

The jury was sworn in at Isleworth Crown Court on Monday, June 2, and the trial will begin on Monday, June 9.

The trial is expected to last five weeks due to the high number of witnesses taking the stand.

Ms Zawadzka is charged with killing Ms Nawracaj at some point between November 16 and 30 last year.
