Five people from Manchester will go on trial in the Autumn, accused of violent disorder following the murder of Rhyl shop owner Amarjeet Singh-Bhakar.
All of the defendants pleaded not guilty when they appeared at Mold Crown Court on Wednesday – they include Mr Singh’s cousin Amar (28) from Burnage and his younger brother, Mohanjeet, from Kingsway.
Sanah Ullah (30) and Ameer Wahid (24) of Chorlton also appeared along with a 15 year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons. Two teenage boys, aged 15 and 16, are charged with murder.
Mr Singh-Bhakar, who ran a clothes store in the White Rose Centre, died from a single stab wound to the neck after a violent disturbance outside a house on Prince Edward Avenue in April.
Mrs Justice Nicola Davies remanded the four men in custody while the teenager was released on bail.
The trial, fixed for Tuesday 3rd October, is due to involve all seven defendants and last for up to five or six weeks.
