Two 14-year-olds are due in court today charged with murder over the deaths of a girl and a woman in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

The two victims have not been officially identified but police say they are believed to be Elizabeth Edwards, 49, and her 13-year-old daughter Katie. Their bodies were found at a house in Dawson Avenue, Spalding, on Friday afternoon. Friends and relatives have been paying tribute to the victims on Facebook.

Apparently referencing Elizabeth Edwards, one man wrote: "...the lady meant the world to me she was my rock and i was her grumpy graham and katie so young lots of good times in front of us been taken away r.i.p." Relative Mary Cottingham posted a picture of the pair, writing below it: "... still in shock cant believe they are gone. I love them so much I need my mum."

The two 14-year-olds are expected to appear at Lincoln Crown Court later. DCI Martin Holvey, who is leading the inquiry, said: "Post- mortem examinations will be carried out in due course but again I still need to speak to anyone with any information that might be relevant from Dawson Avenue from around noon on Wednesday (April 13) to noon on Friday (April 15).
