Gareth Evans QC and Anthony Potter defend in Boston double murder trial

Tue, 10 Dec 2013

Mehmet Ali Ozen, 41, Boston, has denied the murder of Darren Harwood and Charlotte Piccaver and attempted murder of Kayleigh Wright on 21 April this year.

Ozen rented a flat above a shop, and sublet the second floor to Kayleigh Wright and her flatmate Charlotte Piccaver. On 19 April the Ms Wright and her boyfriend Darren Harwood and Ms Piccaver, were arrested accused of assaulting Ozen, but were later released without charge.

The court heard that on 21 April Ozen attacked Ms Wright with a kitchen knife. She was stabbed in the side when Mr Harwood and Mr Piccaver came to help her.

When the emergency services arrived, Ms Piccaver was found dead on the floor in Ozen’s bedroom. Mr Harwood later died in hospital after being stabbed four times.

Ozen says he acted in self-defence after being attacked. The trial continues.
