A HAMPSHIRE teenager has appeared in court over the alleged murder of 26-year-old man.

Charlie George Thomas Cooper spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and nationality – which he gave as Romany – at Winchester Crown Court yesterday.

It follows the death of Courtney Jones at an address in Totton.

A previous hearing heard prosecutors allege that there was an attack on Mr Jones, who suffered fatal injuries.

Judge Jane Miller QC adjourned the hearing until October 3, when Cooper is expected to enter a plea.

The 19-year-old, of Ashby Road, Totton, was remanded in custody.
