The trial of a woman and four men accused of the murder of a young father from Wembley will start today.

Reece James-Menzies died after he was shot in the face at a flat in the Boscombe area of Bournemouth, on July 25 last year.

The 21-year-old had just become a father for the first time.

Wayne Stephenson, 33, Keifer Hutchinson, 22, and Jarome Parkinson, 24, all from London, Kieron Wellington, 29, and Terri Campbell, 22, both from Bournemouth, are all charged with murder.

The murder trial, which is expected to last seven weeks, will take place at Winchester Crown Court.
