Two men have denied murdering Liverpool teenager Anthony Walker.

The 18-year-old died after he was attacked with an axe near McGoldrick Park in Huyton, Merseyside, in July.

Michael Barton, 17, and Paul Taylor, 20, are also charged with conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm to Anthony and his cousin, Marcus Binns.

The pair pleaded not guilty to both charges at Preston Crown Court and their trial is expected to start on Tuesday at Liverpool Crown Court.

Three other people appeared in court last week facing charges associated with the killing.

Paul Morson, 25, from Huyton, appeared before Liverpool magistrates charged with perverting the course of justice.

Robert Williams, 31, and Tracy Garner, 34, both of Kirkdale, are charged with conspiring to assist an offender.

They were all bailed to appear at Liverpool Crown Court on 8 March when they are expected to enter a plea.
