Three men have been charged with murdering a 24 year old man hurt in a fight outside Milton Keynes' Xscape complex.

Joseph Kent (right) died at Milton Keynes Hospital on Tuesday 15 January, just after two days after he was left with head injuries in a fight outside the side entrance to Xscape in Central Milton Keynes.

Samir Bostan, 25, of Wolston Meadow, Middleton, Milton Keynes; Tariq Bostan, 26, of Sarum Road, Luton; and Hamza Noor, 22, of Ranelagh Road, Wembley, have now been charged with murder.  They appeared before Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court on Thursday 24 January 2013.

All three had initially been charged with causing grievous bodily harm, but that was before Joseph Kent died in hospital.  The charges were reviewed by the Thames and Chiltern Crown Prosecution Service following Joseph’s death.

All three were remanded in custody and were due to appear at Luton Crown Court on Friday 25 January 2013.
