TWO Barnsley people who deny murder will appear for the start of their trial at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday.

Scott Dawson, 41, of Allotts Court, Birdwell, and Carol Dawson, 71, of Stonewood Grove, Hoyland, were charged with the murder of Gary Dean, who was discovered in a wooded area near Moorend Lane, Silkstone, on September 6 last year.

The pair, who are remanded in custody, pleaded not guilty at a hearing in May and will appear before Judge Jeremy Richardson, the Recorder of Sheffield, for the trial which is expected to last for five weeks.
