Mr Petrasiunas, aged 24, was stabbed to death outside a block of flats in Chervil Rise, in the Health Town area of Wolverhampton, on July 13 last year.

Sean Bulle, of Clover Ley, in Heath Town, previously pleaded not guilty to his murder at a hearing in October last year. He has been remanded in custody.

A brief hearing took place at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Wednesday, where a trial date was set for Wednesday, April 14.

Heartbroken relatives previously described Mr Petrasiunas, nicknamed “Polo” and originally from Lithuania, as a “kind, loving and humble” father with a young son.

A fundraising page which was set up to help raise funds to pay for Mr Petrasiunas’ funeral and towards his son’s upbringing raised more than £5,000.
