The girl, from Warrington, and the boy, from Leigh, are both currently held in secure accommodation.

Neither can be named because of their ages.

Both appeared via video link at Manchester Crown Court before Mrs Justice Yip for a hearing ahead of their murder trial, scheduled to begin on November 27 at the same court.

Monday’s four-hour hearing dealt with administrative matters which cannot be reported, ahead of the trial next week.
