    A married older sister has commented on social media, that her younger sister Kim and her boyfriend are responsible. Tragic.

    Police have yet to confirm the gender of the teenagers charged, but reports say they are boys. DCI Martin Holvey of the East Midlands special operations unit said postmortem examinations had not yet taken place to determine the cause of death of mother and daughter.

    With the age of the accused I wonder if we won't hear confirmation of ID of the accused in MSM, maybe not even at trial. It seems to be a real tragedy.

    They appear before magistrates tomorrow: http://www.lincs.police.uk/news-camp...d-with-murder/

    Dutch media are reporting that Elizabeth Edwards had two daughters, Katie and Kim. BBM

    "Detectives confirmed that two people have been arrested in connection with the murder inquiry, and are appealing for sightings of suspicious activity near the victims' home."

    The cause of death is still not confirmed and supposably the lady's name is Elizabeth Edwards (49) and the daughter Katie (13)
    Found stabbed in home in Lincolnshire

    The accused are both age 14, both will appear before the Magistrates Court on 4/18/16

    "She was quite well-known because she worked at a primary school and what has happened is just unbelievable. Katie was lovely too but very quiet." Says a women about Elizabeth
    This means the teens could be former students of Elizabeth Edwards at the school she worked at seeing they are 14 and primary only goes up to 11 in England

    I'm fairly sure* that if revealing the relationship of the arrested minor(s) to the victim, it as good as identifies them, it would be considered contempt of court.

    *Not positive, though.

    Let's avoid saying any more until after tomorrow's hearing. If they're identified then, we can probably proceed?

    I wonder if they will be named? The 13 and 14 year old girls that murdered Angela Wrightson (trial last week) are still not allowed to be identified by the media, even post-sentence. Mind you, I get the impression they were in the care system so there'll be red tape there. In this latest case it will be hard for the names to be kept secret, given we already have a clue.
