Men deny murder of Stephen Lawrence
Friday 01 July 2011
Two men appeared at the Old Bailey today to deny the murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence 18 years ago.
Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 34, pleaded not guilty to the charge when they appeared in court via videolink from Belmarsh prison in south east London.
Mr Lawrence, an 18-year-old A-level student, was stabbed to death in a racist attack in Eltham, south east London, in April 1993.
Dobson and Norris, both of south London, remain in custody.
They are to face trial on November 14. A pre-trial hearing will take place on September 29.
Mr Lawrence's mother Doreen, 58, was in court for today's brief hearing. The judge, Mr Justice Treacy, appeared via a videolink from Birmingham Crown Court.
