Boy in court over murder of Bermudian

A 17-year-old boy appeared in a Nottingham youth court today, charged with the murder of 17-year-old Lyrico Steede.

According to the Nottingham Post, the unidentified boy will go before the Crown court on Monday. He was remanded in custody.

The newspaper reported last night that two 17-year-old males were to face charges, while a 17-year-old female was charged with assisting an offender and is expected to appear in court on April 3.

Nottinghamshire Police have reportedly arrested a 19-year-old man, but an 18-year-old man previously arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing has been released.

Mr Steede, 17, was stabbed in the town of Bulwell in Nottingham at about 7.30pm on February 13. He died in hospital six days later.

Known to friends as Rico, Mr Steede had lived in the country for five years and his family are now raising funds to bring his body home for the funeral.

It is The Royal Gazette's policy not to allow comments on stories regarding criminal court cases. This is to prevent any statements being published that may jeopardise the outcome of that case.
