A BARNSLEY man charged with interfering with a grave in Carlton Cemetery earlier this year has seen his case sent to crown court.

Wayne Joselyn, 43, is alleged to have disturbed Ethel Goodwin’s grave in April.

Earlier this week, he appeared at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court charged with the unlawful removal of a body from a burial ground and outraging public decency.

Police were called to the grave after a resident reported the site had been disturbed.

Joselyn decided not to enter a plea.

Judge Timothy Spree said the case was serious enough to go to Sheffield Crown Court, where he will appear on December 16.
