Three men have denied murdering 23-year-old Cody Fisher in a nightclub in Birmingham on Boxing Day last year.

Kami Carpenter, 21, Remy Gordon, 22, and Reegan Anderson, 18 have also pleaded not guilty to affray.

Mr Fisher was stabbed to death in a nightclub in Digbeth, Birmingham, just before midnight on Boxing Day.

Mr Fisher was a non professional footballer and money has been raised by his former clubs - Stratford Town, and Bromsgrove Sporting - for the family, and the CODY23 fund - which aims to support young people,

DCI Ian Ingram, leading the investigation, said previously: "We now have seven people in custody and continue to build a picture of the events that led to the tragic loss of this young man’s life.

"People are continuing to come forward with information, but I still want to hear from anyone who has not yet got in touch with us. 

"If you have footage that we have not yet seen, or you know what may have happened in the lead up to Boxing Day’s awful events, I’d urge you to do the right thing and speak to us right now. 

"We are determined to get answers and justice for Cody’s friends and family, and won’t stop until that happens. We are keeping them updated with developments as they happen, and continue to support them through this awful time."

A trial date has been set for July 3 this year. Judge Mr. Justice Inman says it’s expected to last four weeks.
