2:00pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
TWO men accused of the murder of Mark Reissing in New Brighton have today denied the offence.
Nazzareno Abela, 46, of Springfield Place, Wallasey and Geoffrey Allen, 40, of Rice Hey Road, Wallasey, both pleaded not guilty to murdering of Mr Reissing on July 9 this year.
The 48-year-old victim was found with head injuries on Manor Lane, Egremont Promenade, on July 9. A post mortem examination subsequently revealed that he had died from multiple injuries.
Allen also denied being concerned in supplying Class A drugs between January 1 and July 17 this year, as did Everton man Christopher Halpin, 30, of Roscommon Street.
Halpin also pleaded not guilty to two offences of assisting an offender involving disposing of a vehicle in which Mark Reissing had bled and providing a vehicle, both with intent to impede the apprehension of Abela.
The three men, who appeared at Liverpool Crown Court via video link, were further remanded in custody to await their trial, expected to last six weeks, beginning on January 13.
