The inquest into the death of a Rhyl shop owner has been opened and adjourned.
Amarjeet Singh-Bharkar from Burnage in south Manchester died from a single stab wound to the neck after a violent disturbance on Prince Edward Avenue last month.
Two teenage boys – who cannot be named for legal reasons – have been charged with murder and are due to go on trial on October.
Coroner John Gittins told the Ruthin hearing that he had agreed to allow a second post-mortem examination to take place on Mr Singh-Bharkar, who ran a designer clothes store in the White Rose Centre.
The inquest was adjourned until a later date while the police investigation into the death continues.
