Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson is to stand trial over an alleged attack on a man in prison.
The 65-year-old is accused of carrying out the assault at the high-security HMP Wakefield on January 25.
Details of the alleged offence were heard at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, a court spokeswoman said.
Bronson, who has changed his name by deed poll to Charles Salvador, did not attend the hearing after magistrates were told he would not be produced from his cell.
Bronson, who is currently serving a life term for robbery and kidnap, will go on trial at the same court on July 18.
He married for the third time in November last year to actress Paula Williamson. A private ceremony was held at the prison.
