Adil Basharat Deanshanger school gate murder trial jury out
The jury at the trial of four men accused of murdering a 16-year-old boy at his school gates has retired to consider its verdicts.
Adil Basharat of Greenleys, Milton Keynes, was stabbed with a broken golf club outside Kingsbrook School in Deanshanger, Northants, in November.
Northampton Crown Court has heard the attack was a case of mistaken identity over stolen drugs.
Four men deny murder and violent disorder.
They are Adam Moore, 20, of Bridge Road, Cosgrove, Northamptonshire; Daniel Anderson, 20, of Horsefair Green, Stony Stratford, Buckinghamshire; Freddy Wilson, 20, of Glebe Road, Deanshanger; and Jake Batten, 22, from Mallings Road, Deanshanger.
Died in hospital
Mr Moore and Billy Billingham, 19, of Kingsfold, Bradville, Milton Keynes, also deny conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm between 1 October and 19 November last year.
Adil died in hospital two days after the attack.
He was allegedly set upon by four men looking for a man with the same first name who had robbed Mr Billingham of cocaine.
The attackers were said to be armed with crutches, a screwdriver and a metal bar, as well as the golf club.
