A 53-YEAR-OLD man accused of murdering an 11-year-old girl more than 30 years ago will go on trial today.
Ronald Castree, of Brandon Crescent, Shaw, Oldham, Greater Manchester, is charged with murdering Lesley Molseed in 1975.
Lesley disappeared from her home in Rochdale and her body was found three days later on moors at Ripponden, close to the Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire border.
Tax clerk Stefan Kiszko was convicted of her murder but was freed 16 years later after the Court of Appeal quashed his conviction.
Castree pleaded not guilty to murdering Lesley at a hearing earlier this year.
He is due to go on trial at Bradford Crown Court.
