A privately educated 17-year-old accused of murdering teenager Yousef Makki in a knife attack in Hale Barns has been granted bail by a judge.

The boy – who cannot be named for legal reasons – appeared for a preliminary hearing at Manchester Crown Court today.

Yousef, from Burnage, Manchester, was killed on Saturday in the leafy village while he was visiting friends.

The son of a Lebanese immigrant, he won a scholarship to attend the £12,000-a-year independent Manchester Grammar School.

The A-star pupil dreamed of becoming a heart surgeon before his life was cut short. 

Yesterday another youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, faced court accused of murdering Yousef in the south Greater Manchester village, which is a wealthy area popular with top footballers and celebrities. 

He is also accused of possession of a silver lock-knife, while another 17-year-old boy, who has been bailed, is accused of trying to help him dispose of the weapon.
