Two men have today denied murdering a young woman in Swanley Village.
Adam Whelehan and Thomas Fuller, both 23, will now stand trial at Maidstone Crown Court on April 3.
Natalie Jarvis, also 23, suffered neck wounds in Swanley Village Road on the evening of Wednesday October 3.
Paramedics tried to save her life, but Natalie (pictured right) died at the scene.
Judge Philip Statman today asked if any members of Natalie's family were present in the packed courtroom and was told by prosecutor Ian Acheson her parents and sister were among the bereaved who had attended.
Whelehan, of Roseberry Avenue, Sidcup, and Fuller, of Oakley Drive, Eltham, south east London, spoke only to be identified during the hearing.
They were remanded in custody. The trial is expected to last about 12 days.
