Boy and girl in court accused of murdering a mother and daughter


Two 15-year-olds are due to go on trial accused of murdering a mother and daughter.

The boy and girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will appear at Nottingham Crown Court later.

Both teenagers deny murdering 49-year-old Elizabeth Edwards and her 13-year-old daughter Katie, whose bodies were found at an address in Dawson Avenue, Spalding, Lincolnshire, on April 15.

The two defendants were aged 14 at the time of the alleged offences.
