The case of a man accused of killing his elderly Tufnell Park neighbour during lockdown has come before the Old Bailey.
Anthony Rooks, 80, was pronounced dead after being found collapsed with a head injury at a property in Dalmeny Road on May 4.
It is alleged he may have suffered fatal injuries after being attacked with a brandy bottle.
Sable Thomas, 42, who lived in a neighbouring flat to Mr Rooks in Dalmeny Road, was charged with his murder.
The defendant, who is being held in custody at Belmarsh jail, did not attend a court hearing on Monday due to illness.
