A 19-year-old man has denied stabbing two teenage school friends to death in a country lane.

Thomas Palmer, 19, of Blagrove Drive, Wokingham, Berkshire, is charged with the murders of Steven Bayliss and Nuttawut Nadauld - known as Twood.

Steven, 16, and his 14-year-old friend Twood were found dead in a field in Barkham, near Wokingham, on the night of 11 September last year.

Mr Palmer was told that a provisional date for his trial was set for 8 May.

No application for bail was made.

Relatives of both boys sat in the public gallery of Reading Crown Court as Mr Palmer appeared by video link from custody.

Judge Stanley Spence also ordered a further hearing on 14 March to deal with legal matters.
