Man faces murder trial over torso found in suitcase
A man will go on trial for murder today after a dismembered torso was found stuffed in a suitcase on a country lane.
Ming Jiang, 42, from Beswick, Manchester, is accused of the murder of Yang Liu, 36, between October 5 and October 10 last year.
He was arrested after the headless and limbless corpse of his alleged victim was discovered burned in luggage in a lay-by just off the A628, near Tintwistle, Derbyshire, at about 12.30pm last October 10.
Jiang will go before Judge John Potter at Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, later today for the start of his trial, scheduled to last around three weeks.
