A MAN charged with the murder of a Barnsley woman will stand trial later this year.

Police were called to a property on Rotherham Road at around 1am on May 21 to reports that a woman was injured.

Despite the best efforts of the police and the ambulance service, 53-year-old Julie Youel was pronounced dead at the scene, dying of stab wounds.

Darren Youel, 54, was arrested and charged with her murder last week.

He appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on Tuesday where he was told he will stand trial for murder on November 15.
