A man will go on trial in March for the murder of Kadeem Blackwood in Derby in 2008.

Michael-Paul Hamblett-Sewell, 25, is accused of ordering the shooting of the teenager in Caxton Park in Sunnyhill.

Mr Hamblett-Sewell will appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 17 March for a trial which is expected to last three weeks.
