A MAN appeared before Liverpool Crown Court this week charged with the murder of a Prescot father-of-two.

Christopher Strettle (pictured) , 44, stands accused of murdering mechanic Christopher Honnor, 40, who was shot dead last month at his Warrington Road flat.

He did not enter a plea.

Strettle’s wife, Lesley Strettle, 41, also of Park Avenue, Eccleston Park, also appeared before the court on Monday (November 7) - charged with assisting an offender. The Recorder of Liverpool, Judge Clement Goldstone, set a plea and case management hearing for both defendants for January 9.

A week-long provisional trial date has been set for March.
