Two 15-year-olds have pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of a mother and daughter - but have denied murder.

The boy and girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are accused of killing 49-year-old Elizabeth Edwards and her 13-year-old daughter Katie.

The victims were found dead at a property in Dawson Avenue, Spalding, Lincolnshire, in April.

The accused appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday morning, where they spoke only to confirm their names and enter their pleas.

The trial on the murder charges is expected to begin at Nottingham Crown Court on October 5.
