A takeaway shop owner accused of killing a 16-year-old girl who died from carbon monoxide poisoning is to stand trial in November.

Amman Cheema, 34, of Earl Road, Gravesend, denies the manslaughter of Chelsea Wright, who was found dead in Erith Fried Chicken, Bexleyheath, on March 16 last year. He is also charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Tom Hoyne, 18, a part-time worker at the shop who was found unconscious with Chelsea.

It is alleged Miss Wright was killed by fumes from a heater inside the shop. Cheema also denies perverting the course of justice. It is alleged that last October he told Mr Hoyne, from, Belvedere, to make a statement against the grievous bodily harm charge.

Cheema is due to stand trial at the Old Bailey, on November 8.
