A 24-year-old man has denied the murder of another young man in Bangor last September.

However Brandon Sillence, of Toronnen, Bangor, admitted the manslaughter of Dean Skillin, 20, of Caernarfon.

Sillence appeared via link from remand prison for the video hearing before Judge Rhys Rowlands at Mold crown court.

He is defended by Ian Unsworth QC and prosecuting was John Philpotts.

The murder trial was fixed for March 22 at Caernarfon crown court and is likely to last up to seven days.
