Two men are due to go on trial charged with murdering a convicted child-killer from Huddersfield at a maximum security jail.

Gary David Smith and Lee William Newell are accused of killing Subhan Anwar, who was found dead by staff at HMP Long Lartin in south Worcestershire in February.

Anwar was jailed in 2009 for killing his partner's two-year-old daughter, Sanam Navsarka.

The 25-year-old inmate, who had suffered a neck injury, was found by prison officers shortly before 8pm on February 14.

Smith, 48, and Newell, 44, will appear at Warwick Crown Court in Leamington Spa for a trial which is expected to last for up to three weeks.
