A JUDGE has fixed a trial date in the case of a 22-year-old man accused of causing the death of a father-of-two by dangerous driving.
Charity fundraiser and talented musician Tony Robinson died after being hit by a car in Lane Head Road, Shepley, on December 1.
Yesterday Ashley Patrice made his first appearance before Bradford Crown Court.
Patrice, of Northgate, Almondbury, was charged last week with causing the 56-year-old former army officer's death by dangerous driving together with further allegations of driving while disqualified, failing to stop after an accident, driving without insurance and perverting the course of justice.
The Honorary Recorder of Bradford Judge Stephen Gullick yesterday remanded Patrice back into custody after fixing a provisional trial date for May 16 next year.
A second man, 20-year-old Daniel Robinson, of Eastlands, Almondbury, appeared alongside Patrice in the dock.
He faces a charge of perverting the course of justice and his bail was renewed by Judge Gullick.
Both men will have to attend at the crown court again on February 21 for a plea and directions hearing.
Mr Robinson died on his way home when he was in collision with a car.
