Three men to stand trial for Keelan Wilson murder next year
Three men accused of murdering Wolverhampton teenager Keelan Wilson will stand trial next year.
Keelan, 15, was found with fatal stab wounds just yards from his home in the Merry Hill area of the city at around 11pm on May 29 last year.
Tyrique King, Zenay Pennant-Phillips and Nehemie Tampwo, who was not present in court due to medical reasons, did not enter any pleas during the short hearing at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Friday.
All three men, now 18, have been remanded in custody to next appear at the court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on January 27 next year.
King, of Chelwood Gardens, in Spring Vale, Wolverhampton; Pennant-Phillips, whose address has been withheld for legal reasons; and Tampwo, of Fern Grove in Bletchley, Milton Keynes, were all charged with murder on Tuesday night.
Nine teenagers had previously been arrested in connection with the investigation into Keelan's murder.
A possible trial, which could last up to six weeks, has been scheduled for July 27 next year.
