David Webster, 43, of Lacey Street, Widnes; and Thomas Whiteley, 33, of Clos Emlyn, Old Colwyn; are also charged with murdering Mr Wilcox.

During a hearing at Mold Crown Court on Thursday, prosecutor Andrew Thomas KC updated the court on the defendant's current remand status.

No pleas have yet been entered by any defendant.

Harris was charged with murder on November 24, and Webster and Whiteley on January 18.

A plea and trial preparation hearing is scheduled for April 15, with a trial likely to last up to four weeks.

Previous hearings were told that the defendants are likely to deny murdering Mr Wilcox.

Mr Wilcox, who was born in Ebbw Vale, is survived by his mother, two sisters, four sons, nine grandchildren, and his extended family.

He was described by his family as “such a kind and wonderful person, who always cared for the people he loved”.It was heard at the opening of the inquest into Mr Wilcox’s death that he died after suffering a stab wound.
