Three men accused of murdering teenager Alex Holroyd are set to stand trial next month.

The 19-year-old, whose parents Martin and Diane live in Shipley, suffered a single stab wound to the chest in an attack in Todmorden town centre in January.

Joannis Thompson, 43, of Springwell Drive, West Bowling, Bradford, and Javed Mohammed, 35, of Fagley Place, Bradford, both formally entered not guilty pleas to charges of murder and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm.

A third defendant, Hanif Sigbah Mohammed, 24, of Stansfield Road, Todmorden, faces similar charges but he did not enter his pleas during yesterday's hearing at Bradford Crown Court.

Their three-week trial is due to start on July 7, but it is not yet known whether it will take place in Bradford or Leeds.

All three men were remanded back into custody.
