Four people charged with murdering an NHS worker in an unprovoked attack outside his home are facing a possible trial in the new year.
David Gomoh, 24, was allegedly chased and stabbed eight times by a group of four males after he left his house in Custom House to go shopping on April 26.
The marketing graduate, who worked for the NHS in supplies and procurement, was on the phone to his girlfriend at the time.
Mr Gomoh, whose mother is a nurse, was killed just days before he was due to attend the funeral of his father, who died after contracting Covid-19.
A post-mortem examination found that Mr Gomoh died of stab wounds to the chest and abdomen.
