A MAN suspected of two attacks - one involving a 'corrosive fluid' - is set to stand trial.

Xeneral Imiuru, 20, is due to face a jury at Oxford Crown Court later this year.

Today the same court heard how he had been charged with one count of casting or throwing a corrosive fluid with intent to burn, maim, disfigure or disable any person or in some way cause grievous bodily harm, on March 8, 2017.

He has also been charged with another count of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Paul Flower on December 29, 2018.

It was hoped Imiuru could communicate with the court via video link this afternoon but, in his absence, Judge Peter Ross entered 'not guilty' pleas on his behalf.

Imiuru, whose address was listed as HMP Woodhill, is also known as Xeneral Webster.

He was remanded in custody ahead of a trial scheduled for September 30, which is expected to last between five and seven days.
