Bailey Atkinson was stabbed to death in Walsall

Bailey, aged 20 from Bloxwich, died after being stabbed repeatedly in Walsall's old market in the early hours of January 28 last year.

The trial at Nottingham Crown Court was adjourned early on Monday after Miss Katherine Goddard KC, representing defendant Benjamin Wilkes, aged 19, became unwell part way through cross-examination of a police witness.
