A teenager accused of stabbing a 17-year-old to death at a party will face trial this month.

Charlie Cosser died after being stabbed in the village of Warnham near Horsham on July 22 last year.

He died three days after the incident at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton after doctors tried to save his life.

Another 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Lewes Crown Court in November last year and pleaded not guilty to murder and possessing a bladed article.

He will face trial on May 13. The trial is expected to last for three weeks at Lewes Crown Court sitting in Brighton.
