A provisional trial date has been set for three men accused of killing a young father from Tower Hamlets inside Wormwood Scrubs prison.

Ahmed Khyre, 21, Kalif Dibbassey, 21 and Enton Marku, 20, are charged with the murder of 25-year-old Khader Saleh, who was married with a young son.

On January 31, Mr Saleh, who had been remanded in custody while awaiting sentencing for drug dealing, was found in a cell at the west London jail with a number of knife injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The defendants appeared at the Old Bailey via video link from Belmarsh, Wandsworth and High Down prisons.

Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC set a four-week trial for July 23 with a plea and case management hearing on April 24.

Dutch national Khyre, Briton Marku and Frenchman Dibbassey spoke only to confirm their identities.
