Two teenagers charged with murdering a man at an Auckland motel appeared at the High Court in Auckland today for a trial date to be set.
Leonard Nattrass-Berquist and Beauen Wallace-Loretz, both 17, are accused of murdering 54-year-old Ihaia Gillman-Harris late last year.
They also face charges of robbing Mr Gillman-Harris of cash, a mobile phone and his bank card as well as taking his Range Rover.
A large group of family members was present to support the teenagers, who embraced in the dock.
Justice Lang set the trial for four weeks in November.
