Three family members are to stand trial at Bradford Crown Court on March 24 accused of attempting to murder their neighbour.

Nadeem Nawaz, 25, appeared in the dock yesterday with his sister and mother, Shazmeen Nawaz, 31, and Fazilat Nawaz, 63.

All three are jointly charged with attempting to murder Mohammed Shah, 26, on September 30 at Ringwood Road, Canterbury, Bradford, where he lived.

He suffered multiple stab wounds in the alleged attack.

The case was listed for a plea and case management hearing when the three would enter pleas to the charge, but the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, adjourned the proceedings until January 23.

Prosecutor David Gordon said the trial was expected to last up to seven days.

All the defendants had their bail extended until the next hearing.
