A man has denied murdering a 30-year-old man and attempting to murder another man at a flat in Derbyshire.

Santino Giovanni Genovese, 23, pleaded not guilty to fatally stabbing Paul Averill and attacking a 23-year-old man in Ilkeston, last September.

Mr Genovese, of Charlotte Street, will appear again at Nottingham Crown Court on 10 March for trial.

An armed robbery at a shop on the same street the same morning in September was not linked, police said previously.
