Nicholas Jamieson, 41, of Old Fore Street, was not present at Exeter Crown Court where Judge Francis Gilbert, QC, adjourned proceedings in his absence.

He is currently on remand at Long Larton prison accused of the murder of Brian Kemp, a 71-year-old tourist who was in Devon on holiday from Nottingham in September when he was allegedly attacked with a bayonet.

Mr Michael Fitton, QC, prosecuting, and Mr Simon Laws, QC, defending, both told the judge that more time is needed for psychiatric assessments before the case can progress.

Judge Gilbert remanded Jamieson in custody and did not set a date for the next hearing.
