A MAN and woman accused of murdering a man at Colne a week ago have both made brief appearances at the crown court in Preston.

Donna Harrison (34) of Beech Street, Padiham and Wayne Mackie (40), of Basil Street, Colne, had separate preliminary hearings yesterday.

They were both charged following the death of Steven Sheppard last Monday and their cases have been adjourned for a plea and case management hearing to take place on December 19th.

A provisional trial date has been identified as February 13th.

There was no application for bail for either defendant and they were remanded in custody by Judge Anthony Russell.
