A 29-year-old man charged with the murder of Zdenek Makar will go on trial next year.

Raymond Sculley, of Sherman House in Aberfeldy Street, Poplar, was arrested on Friday in connection with the death of the Czech national who was found lying in a pool of blood in East India Dock Road on Thursday.

A trial date was set for March 20 next year at a hearing at the Old Bailey this morning.

Two others, a man aged 19 and a 16-year-old boy, have been bailed until early October pending further investigations.

A memorial service for Zdenek will be held at St Mary and Joseph’s Church, in Pekin Street, Poplar, on Saturday at 1pm.
