AN ANDOVER man will stand trial later this year after he denied raping a girl under the age of 14.

Keith Frederick Marsh, of Kings Meadow, appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday last week.

The 57-year-old pleaded not guilty to two counts of rape of a child and three counts of indecent assault of a child.

The alleged offences took place between 1991 and 1996.

Marsh will appear at the same court on November 22 for a trial that is expected to last around five days.
