TWO men will appear in court today to stand trial accused of murdering a Southampton man whose body was found in his burnt-out car.

Arben Lleshi, 25, and Afrim Lleshi, 36, have both pleaded not guilty to killing 29-year-old Agim Hoxha in April last year.

Firefighters made the discovery of his body on the morning of April 10 after being called to a remote Chilworth road following a report of a car on fire.

Both men, who are Albanian, will appear before Winchester Crown Court today.

They also and deny a second charge of perverting the course of justice.

They are alleged to have removed crane driver Mr Agim’s body from a flat in Shirley Road, Southampton, and taking him to Chilworth Drive where they set fire to his silver Mercedes.
