A TEENAGER who denies murdering a man who was stabbed in a Skipton park has made another appearance before Bradford Crown Court.

Brooklyn Bell, 18, of Parkwood Rise, Keighley, will stand trial on January 17 accused of murdering Simon McMinn on July 28.

Mr McMinn, who was in his 40s, died after he was stabbed twice in the back and once in the right shoulder in Aireville Park.

Bell today appeared before the court on a video link to HMP Doncaster to hear John Elvidge QC for the Crown confirm that the case was “trial ready.”

Mr Elvidge said that a timeline and CCTV footage would form part of an electronic presentation for the jury.

Bell was remanded back into custody by Judge Jonathan Rose who will be the trial judge.
