A 17-year-old boy has appeared in front of magistrates charged with the murder of a Daventry teenager.

The charge follows the death of Stanley Harrison, also aged 17, at Coventry’s University Hospital on Sunday following an incident on the Lang Farm estate at around 3am on Saturday morning.

The defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Northampton Magistrates Court today (Monday) to face the charges.

He spoke only to confirm his name and address and wore a blue sweater. Members of his family were in attendance.

Magistrates remanded the youth at a detention centre to appear again for a bail hearing at Northampton Crown Court on Wednesday (June 18).
