A POTENTIAL date has been set for the trial of two girls aged 13 and 14 who are charged with murdering a 39-year-old woman from Hartlepool.

Angela Wrightson’s body was found at her home in Stephen Street, Hartlepool, in December.

A post-mortem revealed she died from blood loss and had suffered substantial injuries.

At a brief hearing at Teesside Crown Court, a trial date for either June 24 or June 29 was agreed.

Mr Justice Glove will be the judge.

A plea and case management hearing will take place on March 3.

Neither of the defendants, who cannot be identified, were brought to court for the short hearing.
