I had an idea that you'd suggest that.

Cool dudes can shift the street-cred to the middle-line, but few have what it takes.

Four people charged with assisting an offender in the Becky Watts case as trial date is set for stepbrother accused of her murder

Karl Demetrius, 29, Donovan Demetrius, also 29, Jaydene Parsons, 23, and James Ireland, 23, accused of assisting an offender in murder case.

Becky vanished in Bristol on February 19 and body parts found on Monday.

Nathan Matthews, 28,  has been charged with murder of missing teenager.

Shauna Hoare, 21, charged with attempting to pervert course of justice.



By MARTIN ROBINSON FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 13:32, 6 March 2015 | UPDATED: 13:43, 6 March 2015


Suspects: Jaydene Parsons, 23, (right) who has a young son with her boyfriend, 29-year-old Karl Demetrius (left), have today been charged with assisting an offender in relation to the Becky Watts murder




In custody: Donovan Demetrius (Top) has also been charged as has Jamie Ireland, (bottom), and all four will appear in court today. A fifth suspect was released without charge

Delivery driver Matthews, 28, is accused of killing his stepsister and his girlfriend Shauna Hoare, 21, is accused of 'consistently lying to police' in an attempt to protect her boyfriend.
Matthews, who was unshaven and wearing a grey sweatshirt, appeared via video link from HMP Bristol, and did not enter a plea this morning.
Judge Neil Ford QC, Recorder of Bristol, remanded Matthews in custody and set another hearing for March 26 and he expected a trial after September 1. 
Prosecutor James Ward told the court: 'Nathan Matthews is charged with the murder of Rebecca Watts.
'The allegations of this case have been well-rehearsed in the press recently and I do not propose to go into the finer details.
'There are still people helping the police with their inquiries. Therefore, it would be wrong to place before the media further details about this case.'


Becky, 16, was last seen at her home in the St George's area of Bristol on February 19. Body parts thought to belong to the teenager were found on Monday night after police were called to an address in Barton Hill

Police discovered body parts on Monday night after they were called to a property at Barton Court, in the Barton Hill area of Bristol (top right). They also searched a second house, and a blue car parked outside (bottom right). Barton Court is just a street away from a house in Cotton Mill Lane (bottom left) which has been searched extensively, and is opposite Becky's boyfriend Luke's house (bottom centre). Police also searched Becky's home (top right), and a house in Southmead (top left) where they seized a black Vauxhall Zafira


Mr Ward said police were assessing 'at least' 1,200 exhibits in connection with the case.
'Much forensic work needs to be done,' he said.
Paul Cook, representing Matthews, said his client was not making an application for bail.
Matthews' girlfriend, Shauna Hoare, 21, who is charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice, will also appear before the court charged with perverting the course of justice on that date.
They were detained after detectives attended a house in Barton Court, Barton Hill in Bristol, following information that Becky's body had been 'cut up'.   


A photograph from Darren and Anjie Galsworthy's 2013 wedding has emerged showing Matthews (far left) next to the couple, with Hoare (next to Mrs Galsworthy) and Becky (right) as bridesmaids



As a white custody van left the court shortly before 11am, members of the public who had been waiting outside the court banged on the sides of the vehicle and yelled abuse as it drove away



Yesterday, Matthews and Hoare stood emotionless in the dock to face charges after 16-year-old Becky's dismembered body was discovered 80 yards from their home earlier this week
Their separate court appearances were a stark contrast to the wedding photograph which was taken by a family friend in August 2013, after Becky's father Darren Galsworthy, 51, married Matthews' mother Anjie, 49, at a church ceremony in St George, Bristol.
Nearly 100 guests attended a reception at the nearby Bendix Club, Kingswood, where Becky and her stepbrother were seen laughing and joking together. Matthews, who held his and Hoare's young daughter in the picture, was dressed in the same grey suit and cream waistcoat as his stepfather.
Hoare and Becky wore matching blue bridesmaid dresses.
Becky vanished from her home in Bristol on the morning of February 19. Police launched a huge search operation after she was reported missing the following afternoon.
But on Monday night, detectives discovered her 'cut up' body at a house in Barton Hill, Bristol.

No probs.

I hope they all get handed very long prison sentences.

The evil b*stards.

It is pretty awful, shocking in fact.  Well done to The Police.

But we must have a care as The Police have asked for On Line Commenters to beware of what they say.

Becky Watts stepbrother and his girlfriend guilty of killing



11 November 2015
 


Becky's body was dismembered at the home of Nathan Matthews and Shauna Hoare
 
The stepbrother of Becky Watts has been found guilty of murdering her during a sexually motivated kidnap plot.
Nathan Matthews, 28, had admitted killing and dismembering the teenager, but claimed he was only trying to scare her to teach her a lesson.
But a jury at Bristol Crown Court found him and his girlfriend Shauna Hoare guilty of conspiring to kidnap her, partly for sexual reasons.
Hoare, 21, was cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter.
'Sexually motivated kidnap'
She was also convicted of perverting the course of justice by lying to police and preventing a lawful burial by dismembering and hiding Becky's body - charges Matthews had admitted.
The jury took just over three hours to convict the couple, after hearing 21 days of evidence.
As the first verdict was returned, related to kidnap, people in the public gallery began clapping and shouting "yes".
Becky's father Darren and his wife Anjie sobbed, while Matthews and Hoare remained totally emotionless.

Matthews, who gave his address as Hazelbury Drive in Warmley, South Gloucestershire, suffocated Becky at her home in Crown Hill, Bristol, on 19 February.
He then dragged her body into the boot of his car and drove it to the home he shared with his girlfriend less than two miles away in Cotton Mill Lane.
In the days that followed, Matthews bought a circular power saw, goggles, masks, bags, cling film and tape to cut up and package Becky's body.

Police initially interviewed the couple as witnesses, after they told officers they had been at Becky's home that day to help her stepmother, Matthews's mother, for whom Hoare was a registered carer.
But when they knew police would be coming to the house, on 24 February, they made arrangements to move Becky's remains to a shed at a friend's address, 80 metres away.
Hoare denied any knowledge of Becky's death and subsequent dismemberment, but the prosecution said the idea she could have been in "blissful ignorance" of events, while being with Matthews the morning of Becky's death, and throughout the days her body was dismembered, was "ridiculous".
'Sinister motive'
Speaking outside court, Detective Superintendent Mike Courtier, said their "macabre plan" had resulted in Becky's killing.
"Matthews and Hoare concocted a heinous plan to kidnap his stepsister Becky for reasons that they have failed to fully disclose, other than she occasionally left items on the floor which could have tripped up Nathan Matthews' mother.
"The body of evidence however suggested a more sinister motive related to their deep-seated hatred for Becky and their twisted sexual desires."
"They took her body back to their home in Cotton Mill Lane and began the horrific and grotesque task of dismembering her over a matter of days.
"It is virtually impossible to comprehend this level of depravity."
Becky's father Darren and his wife Anjie, who is Matthews's mother, described her as a "big-hearted" girl who was "full of life".

I am amazed.  I honestly thought that the silly girl didn't know.  Although I have to accept that it was a stretch of imagination.

Nathan Matthews and Shauna Hoare jailed for Becky Watts killing
9 minutes ago
From the section Bristol

Nathan Matthews has been jailed for a minimum of 33 years for murdering his stepsister Becky Watts, 16, in a sexually-motivated kidnap plot.
His girlfriend Shauna Hoare, 21, has been sentenced to 17 years for manslaughter.
At Bristol Crown Court, Judge Mr Justice Dingemans said he was sure on the evidence "that the planned kidnap of Becky was for a sexual purpose".
Matthews suffocated his stepsister at her home in Bristol on 19 February.
The judge appeared emotional as he paid tribute to Becky's family at the end of sentencing.
Judge Dingemans told Hoare she had been convicted of manslaughter because she had participated in a kidnap where any "sober and reasonable person" would have known some harm would come to Becky.
He said the case was of a "particularly high" seriousness "because of the planning of the abduction for a sexual purpose, the taking of the implements described and a weapon (albeit non lethal) and the murder of Becky".
He added: "In my judgment the behaviour of both Nathan Matthews and Shauna Hoare in feigning concern with the family, as the family desperately searched for Becky, is a further, and serious, aggravating feature.
"In my judgement the appropriate sentence for Mr Matthews is a mandatory life sentence, with a minimum term of 33 years. This means that Mr Matthews, as a 28-year-old man, will be 61 before he might be considered for release, and the reality is that he might never be released."
