A man has pleaded not guilty to murder following the death of a 23-year-old in Rushden last year.
Danney James Beaumont, 26, denied killing Steven Smith in Trafford Road in the town early on Saturday, October 25.
Mr Smith, from Trafford Road, died of his injuries in hospital shortly afterwards.
Following his death, a fundraising campaign was launched to help Mr Smith’s family.
Beaumont appeared before Northampton Crown Court on Wednesday afternoon this week, where Judge Rupert Mayo remanded him in custody.
A trial will be held in July.
