The trial of a man charged with the rape and murder of a woman in Aberdeen has been moved until next year.

Bala Chinda, 25, denies murdering 36-year-old Nkechi - also known as Jessica - McGraa at a flat in Union Terrace in February.

He is also accused of attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

Mr Chinda had been expected to stand trial next week. However, during a short hearing at the High Court in Glasgow, the case was set for January.
