A man has appeared in court accused of trying to murder his half-brother.

Andrew Davies, 37, is said by prosecutors to have attacked the man in Oxford on Tuesday, October 11.

Appearing before Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, Davies, of Barton Village Road, Oxford, entered no pleas to a charge of attempted murder.

The case was sent to the city’s crown court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on November 11, when it is expected Davies will enter a plea to the charge.

Davies was remanded in custody.

Attempted murder carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The charge is indictable-only, meaning a guilty or not guilty plea to it can only be taken at the crown court.
