The trial of a 48 year old  for rape, sexual abuse and corruption of a girl aged under 13 will start at the Paphos Criminal Court on October 24.

The defendant also faces the charges of making threats and battery.

He appeared before Paphos Criminal Court on Monday after the district court referred his case direct to trial. He remains in police custody.

The offences were allegedly committed between September 2010 and November 2011 in Paphos when the girl was six and seven years old. The defendant, who was the stepfather of the child at the time, has denied any involvement.
