Trail date set for two teenagers charged with murder

Two teenagers charged with murdering a Birstall man outside a factory have had a provisional trial date being set for this summer following their first appearance at Crown Court.

Kiyran Earnshaw, aged 18, of Field Lane, Batley, and a 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named due to his age, appeared before Leeds Crown Court over the death of 53-year-old Robert Wilson.

Mr Wilson was stabbed outside the Thornton & Ross factory in Linthwaite, Huddersfield, last Thursday.

Both defendants are charged with murder and possessing an offensive weapon.

Earnshaw is also charged with wounding with intent and possession of a bladed article in relation to a 39-year-old man who suffered injuries in the same incident.

A plea and trial preparation hearing has been listed for April, with a provisional trial date being listed for July 13.
