A Dutch engineer accused of murdering landscape architect Joanna Yeates is due to appear at the Old Bailey.
Vincent Tabak, Miss Yeates's next-door neighbour, will appear via videolink before Mr Justice Field.
Miss Yeates, 25, who lived in Clifton, Bristol, disappeared on December 17 after going for Christmas drinks with colleagues.
Her frozen body was found dumped on a verge in a lane in Failand, north Somerset, on Christmas Day.
Tabak, 33, is expected to go on trial later this year.
