A MAN accused of murdering Joshua Clark and Haidar Shah in an early-hours stabbing in Halifax is set to go on trial at the start of next week.

Rashane Douglas, 19, of Jade Place, Huddersfield, is due to go on trial at Bradford Crown Court (BCC) on Monday, not before 11.30am.

He is accused of five offences in total: two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, one count of wounding with intent, and one count of having an article with a blade or point.

The 19-year-old denied all the charges at BCC on November 2, 2023.

The alleged murder offences are in relation to 21-year-old Joshua and 19-year-old Haidar.

Both men, who have Bradford links, died after a stabbing in Commercial Street, Halifax, on October 1 last year.

The attempted murder and wounding with intent charges relate to a third male, who was also injured that night.

Judge Jonathan Rose discussed a timetable for the progress of the case with prosecution and defence counsel at that hearing and it was estimated the trial could last more than 10 days.
