Have your say

A MAN accused of murdering David Guy, whose torso was discovered on Southsea beach, has reappeared in court.

46-year-old David Hilder spoke only to confirm his name at the hearing at Winchester Crown Court this afternoon.

He was led to the secure dock by three guards.

Hilder, unshaven and wearing a blue T-shirt and grey tracksuit bottoms, sat emotionless and stared towards the front of the court during the 10-minute hearing.

Judge Keith Cutler remanded Hilder, of Richmond Road, Southsea, in custody and ordered him to enter a plea at the court on October 12.

Barry McElduff, defending Hilder, made no application for bail.

Mr Guy’s mutilated torso was discovered on Southsea beach near The Pyramids on July 3.
