A MAN accused of murder has appeared at Barnsley Magistrates' Court.

David Sindall, 33, made no plea to a charge of murdering Dean Armitage.

Mr Armitage died nearly three weeks after being injured outside his house on Skiers View Road, Hoyland Common, early on July 21.

Sindall was sent to Sheffield Crown Court where he will make an appearance on September 11.

Walter Brook, defending, who made no bail application, said the trail of Sindall, of Selbourne Street, Eastwood, Rotherham had been fixed for February 10, 2014.
