Two young brothers accused of attempting to murder two boys in South Yorkshire will go on trial later this year, a judge has ordered.
The two, aged 10 and 11, are accused of attacking and robbing a nine-year-old boy and his 11-year-old uncle in Edlington, near Doncaster, on 4 April.
They are also accused of sex offences in relation to the alleged attack.
A judge at Sheffield Crown Court ordered the brothers to stand trial on 2 September.
The pair were arrested after the nine-year-old was found covered in blood, in the former pit village.
The youngster told officers where to find his uncle, who was discovered unconscious in a nearby wooded ravine.
The two accused brothers, who cannot be named for legal reasons, each face the same charges.
These are that they attempted to murder the two boys, who also cannot be named, and that they robbed each of the youngsters.
According to the robbery charges, the brothers are accused of taking a mobile phone from the younger boy and Â£5 from the older boy.
They are both also charged with two counts of intentionally causing a child to engage in sexual activity.
The boys have been remanded into secure local authority accommodation.
