* A 10-year-old girl alleged to have been kept as a sex slave and raped more than 900 times by her stepfather will be quizzed again by the prosecutions team in the run-up to the man's trial. The suspect yesterday appeared in the Verulam Magistrate's Court via a video link from the Westville Prison. The court heard that a second statement from the girl's DNA test results and a psychologist's report from an interview with her had not yet been completed. The state is likely to add more charges. The suspect will appear in court again on 13 December.
