The two men will stand trial in London’s royal court this morning before the murder charges of the murders of John Kinsella and Paul Massey.
The 53-year-old Mr. Kinsella, originally from Everton, died after he was shot dead while walking his dog with his partner on a footpath, not far from St Helens Linkway and the M62 motorway at 7 am, Saturday 5 May.
The shot was also fired by John Wendy Owen’s partner when she ran off the stage.
Mr Massey, 55, shot dead outside his home in July 2015, was a prominent figure in his hometown of Salford and was involved in defense firms operating in Manchester and beyond.
Stephen Boyle, 35, Sandivey, Heywood, Rochdale and Mark Fellows, 37, from Sandy Lane West, Hulm, Warrington, deny two murders in relation to two deaths.
Both men also deny an assassination attempt after being shot dead by Miss Owen’s partner, Miss Owen, when she fled from the scene of the assassination in St. Helens.
Massey died in a hail of bullets when he got out of a silver BMW car outside his home in the area of Clifton in Salford almost two years ago.
