A 60-year-old man has appeared at the Old Bailey, accused of murdering a father-of-two in St Albans more than 20 years ago.
Justin Clarke, of no fixed address, is accused of shooting Paul Milburn, 43, with a hand gun as he sat in his Saab car.
Mr Milburn, a self-employed builder from Walton, was found dead behind the wheel in Noke Lane, St Albans, on Friday, April 26, 1993.
A post-mortem examination found he died from a gunshot wound to the upper part of his body.
In 2016, Clarke was arrested in Berlin under the European Arrest Warrant, before being extradited to the UK.
