Reece Cox, aged 24, died outside The Clifton pub, in Sedgley, just before midnight on August 15. He was found with fatal head injuries.

Ryan Nicklin, 22, of Limes Avenue, Pensnett, and Sebastian Jones, 18, of Corser Street, Dudley, appeared at Wolverhampton Crown Court today.

During the hearing a bail application for both defendants was refused.

It means a total of six people have now been charged over Mr Cox’s murder – with another man having been charged with violent disorder and actual bodily harm.

Wayne Burke, 22, of Queens Street, Pensnett; Shane Jones, 25, of Orchard Grove, Lower Gornal; Shaquel Halliday, 22, of Shadwell Drive, Lower Gornal; and Adam Ashwin, 19, of Monument Lane, Sedgley, have all been charged with Mr Cox's murder, as well as violent disorder and actual bodily harm.

Tyrone Halliday, aged 24, of Inglefield Road, in Stetchford, Birmingham, was charged with violent disorder and actual bodily harm.

They will all next appear at Wolverhampton Crown Court on September 25, for a plea and trial preparation hearing.
