Three young men facing charges over the death of a man in Leeds city centre last year have appeared in court for the first time.
Andrew Wright, Kyle Monkman and David Taylor, who are all 18, are facing allegations relating to Robert Adamczyk’s death.
Mr Adamczyk died of head injuries following an incident on New Briggate, near the Grand Theatre, in the early hours of December 9.
Wright, of Whingate Grove, Armley, Leeds, is charged with manslaughter and affray.
Taylor, of Prince Edward Grove, Wortley and Monkman, of Barden Place, Armley, are both charged with affray.
Mr Adamczyk, an engineer who had recently moved in with his girlfriend, had been on a stag night for a friend in Leeds city centre when he was allegedly attacked at around 2am.
The 28-year-old, of South Milford near Selby, was taken to hospital but his death was confirmed a short time later.
All three accused appeared for a short hearing at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
Wearing a shirt and tie, Wright spoke only to confirm his name. Monkman, dressed in a T-shirt and jeans, also briefly confirmed his details, as did Taylor, who wore a tracksuit jacket and jogging bottoms.
The three were given conditional bail and told that the case would be sent to Leeds Crown Court.
An initial hearing at the Crown Court will be held on Wednesday.
Mr Adamczyk’s death was one of two following late night incidents in the city centre in the weeks before Christmas.
Darryl Kerr, 43, from Whinmoor, died after an alleged attack on Lower Briggate on December 21. Luke Boyes, 19, of Cross Flatts Mount, Beeston, is charged with manslaughter.
