Man due in court in connection with jockeys' deaths

A man accused of murdering two young jockeys who died in a fire at a flat will appear before a judge today.

Peter Brown, 37, is charged with the murder of promising apprentices Jamie Kyne, 18 and Jan Wilson, 19, on September 5 last year.

Kyne, from Co Galway, and Wilson, from Forfar, Scotland, died in the blaze at a flats complex in Norton, near Malton, North Yorkshire.

The deaths of the two young riders shocked the racing world and a series of tributes were held at race courses and yards across Britain and Ireland.

Brown, of School Croft, Brotherton, Knottingley, North Yorkshire, will appear for a plea and case management hearing at Leeds Crown Court.
