A suspected Harrogate murder victim has been named ahead of the opening of an inquest into his death tomorrow.
George Balciauskas, 41, died just before Christmas on the night of Monday, December 20 at a flat on Mayfield Grove.
A coroner will open an inquest into the circumstances surrounding Mr Balciauskas’ death tomorrow in Northallerton. The case is likely to be adjourned pending the outcome of the murder trial.
Vitalijus Koreiva, 36, of Mayfield Grove, and Jaroslaw Rutowicz, 38, of no fixed abode, appeared at York Magistrates Court last month charged with murder.
They did not enter pleas and the case was adjourned until February 4.
