Couple in court for murdering 15-year-old outside school gates

Two teenagers accused of murdering a boy outside his school gates have appeared before a Crown Court for the first time.

Khayri McLean, 15, was stabbed near the entrance of North Huddersfield Trust School (NHTS) last Wednesday afternoon and later died in hospital.

Two youths aged 15 and 16 appeared via video link for a 10 minute hearing at Leeds Crown Court.

They were seated together at a spot in Wetherby, one wearing a gray prison-issue T-shirt, the other a gray sweatshirt, and both defendants wore masks for the hearing.

Family members sat in the auditorium and a number of reporters in attendance sat on the court jury benches.

Judge Tom Bayliss KC was told that none of the defendants were able to plead.

A preliminary hearing has been set for March 13, with a pre-trial hearing for October 26.

Jonathan Sandiford KC, prosecutor, estimated the trial could take three weeks.

The court issued orders barring the media from identifying the two defendants based on their age.

The judge placed both teenagers in juvenile detention.
