Two teenagers appeared in court today (mon) charged with the murder of a mother and her young daughter.
The boy and girl, both aged 14, are accused of murdering school dinner lady Elizabeth Edwards, 49, and her 13-year-old daughter Katie.
The bodies of the mum-of-two and her daughter were found at their home in Spalding, Lincs, on Friday afternoon.

The girl wore a grey prison top, jeans and black rimmed glasses.
