A pensioner is to stand trial today accused of killing her partner.
Joyce Evans, 69, denies murdering Colin Ballinger, 66, at the home they shared in New Orleans Walk, Hornsey Rise, in July last year.
Mr Ballinger was taken to hospital but could not be saved after Evans was alleged to have placed a plastic bag over his head and applied pressure to his neck.
Evans will stand trial at the Old Bailey.
