TWO men have denied aiding the suspect accused of the fatal stabbing of teenager Connor Tremble.
Bradley Jones, of New Road, Bledington, near Chipping Norton, and Grant Clemens, of Stockwells, Moreton-in-Marsh, both appeared in Oxford Crown Court today.
They are charged with doing a series of acts tending or intended to pervert the course of public justice between February 12 and February 15 this year.
It is alleged that between those dates both men provided William Blencowe, of Oxford Road, Banbury, with clothing and helped him get transport.
The 20-year-old Blencowe has been charged with murdering 17-year-old Connor outside his flat in Iffley Fields, Oxford, on February 13 this year.
He has yet to enter a plea but is due to be tried at Oxford Crown Court alongside the other two men on August 11 this year.
Blencowe and 23-year-old Clemens have both been remanded in custody.
Jones was released on conditional bail.
