Man in court accused of taking part in Harlesden murder
Victim died four days after being found unconscious on the street
A second man accused of killing a Filipino found in a street with head injuries denied a murder charge at the Old Bailey today (Wednesday).
Victor Wilkins, 27, is said to have taken part in an attack on 29 year-old in Cecil Road, Harlesden, last summer.
The victim, who died in hospital on August 17, was only identified after police issued photographs of his distinctive tattoos.
Wilkins and his co-accused David Van Der Riet, 34, appeared in court by video link from prison for a plea and case management hearing.
Both are due to stand trial on June 6 alongside Rochelle Zapanta, 25, who is accused of perverting the course of justice by disposing of a mobile phone and rucksack belonging to Mr Maderazo.
Wilkins pleaded not guilty to a single charge of murder.
