A teenager accused of murdering a Leicester football coach will face a retrial.

Antoin Akpom, 20, was stabbed during a confrontation in Kent Street last year.

Last month a jury failed to reach a verdict at Nottingham Crown Court on Abdul Hakim, 19, of Wood Hill, Leicester.

Hussain Hussain, also 19, was jailed for life after being found guilty of Mr Akpom's murder.

The Crown Prosecution Service said Mr Hakim would stand trial "no later than July".
