A man accused of murdering a 15-year-old boy in Derby is to stand trial for a third time.

Michael-Paul Hamblett-Sewell, now 25, has denied ordering the death of Kadeem Blackwood in Caxton Park in November 2008.

The jury in Mr Hamblett-Sewell's retrial at Nottingham Crown Court was discharged earlier this month after failing to reach a majority verdict.

The third trial is expected to take place in early autumn.

Mr Hamblett-Sewell was told he will face the second retrial during a hearing at Nottingham Crown Court earlier, and was remanded in custody.

Another man, Callum Campbell, is already serving a life sentence after he admitted firing the shot that killed Kadeem Blackwood.
