THREE men are to stand trial accused of attempted murder in Brighouse.
The charges follow a shooting incident in an alleyway.
John Hardy, 45, of Rochdale Road, Greetland, Allan Morrison, 45, of Cold Street, Haworth, and Tony Lee, 20, of Backhold Drive, Siddal, Halifax, are all accused of trying to murder Frederick Paul Stephens on March 14.

The court heard that the men's trial had been fixed to start on April 11.
Morrison and Lee were remanded back into custody.
Hardy has been granted conditional bail until the trial.
