NOTTINGHAM, England (CMC) — Three teenagers have been charged with the murder of 17-year-old Bermudan Lyrico Steede, who was stabbed to death last month.

The three — Kesharn Campbell, 19, and two 17-year-olds, who cannot be named for legal reasons— appeared in court on Monday and are expected to go on trial on October 2.

The three are charged with stabbing Steede in Bulwell, on the outskirts of this East Midlands city, on February 13. Steede died in hospital six days later.

A 17-year-old girl, who also cannot be named, has been charged with assisting an offender and is expected to appear at Nottingham Youth Court on April 3.

Steede moved to Nottingham five years ago to live with family and his Bermudan relatives have organised a fundraiser to take his body home for the funeral. The family's appeal has so far raised 10,000.

According to the family fundraiser, “Lyrico was an extremely quiet, but happy and humble child. He has been this way since birth."

His mother had only recently packed up her life in Bermuda and moved to Britain.
