THREE people accused of stabbing a man during a town centre fight will stand trial for the alleged offence.

Lee St Hilaire, 30, Luke Simpson, 22, and a 16-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons, are all charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

It relates to an alleged stabbing in Huddersfield town centre on Friday March 26. Appearing before Bradford Crown Court yesterday, the three defendants spoke only to confirm their names.

His Honour Judge Stewart adjourned the case until May 6 for a plea and case management hearing with a trial date fixed for June 21.

The three defendants were released on conditional bail.

St Hilaire is a Kirklees Council youth worker, of Keldregate, Bradley. Simpson, of Wilmar Drive in Salendine Nook, is a student at Leeds Metropolitan University.

The charge comes after a man in his 20s was allegedly stabbed five or six times and suffered a punctured lung on Westgate shortly after 5pm on Friday March 26.
