Mark Harries QC and Joanne Kane defend in Derby murder trial

Mark Harries QC is leading Joanne Kane for the defence of a man accused of murder and conspiracy to rob in a 3-handed trial in Derby Crown Court before Knowles J. Their defendant and two others are alleged to have plotted the robbery of a drug dealer in a park in Derby on the pretence that a purchase of cocaine was to take place. During the incident a man was stabbed in the leg three times, one wound severing an artery which led to his death. The trial continues.

Mark and Joanne are instructed by Derek Angus of The Smith Partnership, Derby.
