A provisional date has been set for the trial of Patrick Sharp, who stands accused of murdering 18-year-old Kajetan Migdal.
Sharp, aged 18, is thought to have killed Kajetan Migdal during an incident on Cuttys Lane, Stevenage, at around 11.20pm on Friday, May 27.
Kajetan was travelling home from a school prom and died in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Sharp, who is from Stevenage, appeared at Luton Crown Court via video-link from custody today (Wednesday, June 1).
He entered the custody suite with his arms folded, wearing a grey tracksuit.
He slouched as he spoke only to confirm his identity, but was not asked to make a plea.
