An alleged gunman accused of shooting a father-of-one who died four years later will stand trial for murder in April.

Shaun Brown, 30, is accused of shooting 21-year-old Garvey Thomas in the head from close range outside the Livingstone Hotel in Melville Road on June 16, 2006.

Mr Thomas was left wheelchair bound following the shooting and died four years later aged 25 on August 28, 2010 - allegedly as a result of his injuries.

Brown appeared at the Old Bailey today via video link but is yet to be arraigned on a single charge of murder.

His trial has been listed for April 10.

Brown, of no fixed address, was remanded in custody ahead of his next appearance at the same court for a hearing on April 7.
