A Wembley man accused of gunning down a 20-year-old in Sudbury will stand trial in September.
Abdullah Amouri, 21, is said to have shot Romario Green dead in Harrow Road, near the Sudbury Swan, on July 2 last year.
The victim was blasted in the chest and throat when a single shot was fired.
Amouri was arrested at Heathrow Airport on March 18 after being extradited from Spain on a European Arrest Warrant.
Today at the Old Bailey he appeared at the dock where he spoke only to confirm his name.
Amouri is charged with Mr Green’s murder, as well as possession of a shotgun, and possession of a gun and ammunition with intent to endanger life.
Judge Mark Lucraft set a trial date for September 5 for the case which is expected to last three weeks.
Amouri faces trial alongside Renardo Johnson and Jacob McClean, both 24, who are each charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice.
They appeared in court by videolink for the brief hearing.
The three men are expected to enter pleas to the charges at a hearing on June 7.
Amouri is charged with murder, possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, and possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life.
Johnson and McClean, both of no fixed abode, each face two counts of perverting the course of justice.
