A TEENAGE man accused of knifing man to death in Bournemouth has denied murder.

Jamie Frank Higgs, 18 and of Windsor Road, Boscombe, appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Friday, February 21, to plead not guilty to killing Kai Joshua Archer.

Mr Archer, who was 20, suffered stab wounds to the chest during an alleged incident in St Swithun's Road at 10.10pm on Saturday, November 16 last year.

He was rushed to hospital, but died a short time later.

Higgs was charged with murder after the death. He will face a trial at the crown court in May.

Police confirmed earlier this month that a 17-year-old Bournemouth boy arrested on suspicion of affray in connection with Mr Archer's death will face no further police action.
