A 20-year-old man has denied murdering two teenagers in a Milton Keynes alleyway two years ago.

Mohammed Abdi Farah, 19, and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18, were shot in the head on the Fishermead council estate in Milton Keynes in May 2011.

Ahmed Ahmed, of no fixed address, pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder via video link at the Old Bailey.

He was remanded in custody ahead of a trial due at Luton Crown Court in May.

In January, two men were jailed for a combined 70 years after being convicted of murdering the teenagers.

Fuad Awale, 25, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 38 years, while 22-year-old Sharmake Abdulkadir was also jailed for life and ordered to spend at least 32 years in jail.
