A man accused of carrying out two murders is to face trial later this year.

Mehmet Ali Ozen (41), of Red Lion Street, Boston, denied the murders of both Charlotte Piccaver (26) and Darren Harwood (26), on April 21 this year when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court on Friday.

Ozen also pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder of Keyleigh Wright (24) on the same date.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned the hearing for a two week trial scheduled to begin on December 9.

There was no application for bail and Ozen was remanded in custody.

The charges follow an incident at a property in Red Lion Street, Boston, early on the morning of Sunday, April 21.

Ms Piccaver was pronounced dead at the scene and Mr Harwood died later in the Pilgrim Hospital, Boston. Both had suffered stab wounds.

Ms Wright was taken to the same hospital where she was treated for less serious injuries.
