Murder accused attempts to attack co-accused in court

A SENTENCING hearing has begun for the two young men accused of butchering an innocent teenager to death at a western Sydney service station last year.

A 17-year-old boy, who can't be named for legal reasons, was walking home when he was repeatedly stabbed by two strangers in front of his older brothers.

Corey Loveridge, 20, was found guilty of murder last year while his teenage co-accused, who also can't be named, pleaded guilty.

Security officers and police were forced to subdue the pair in court on Thursday.

According to the Herald, the teenager broke free and attempted to attack Loveridge while screaming "I'm going to kill you, you f***** dog".

The hearing continues.
