Husband remanded after denying wife’s murder
Gurpreet Singh enters not guilty plea five months after murder inquiry launched.
A businessman accused of murdering his wife has pleaded not guilty to the charge during a videolink court appearance.
Gurpreet Singh, 42, will now face trial at Birmingham Crown Court in October accused of killing of 38-year-old Sarbjit Kaur.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene on February 16 this year after paramedics were called to her detached home in Rookery Lane, Penn, Wolverhampton.
A post-mortem examination determined she had died from asphyxiation.
Singh, wearing a red zip-up jacket, spoke to enter his plea and confirm that he could hear and see the proceedings from a videolink booth at HMP Birmingham on Friday.
Judge Patrick Thomas QC remanded Singh in custody until his trial, which is expected to last for up to three weeks.
