Girl remanded in custody over Great Yarmouth knife killing

A 17-year-old girl appeared at Great Yarmouth Youth Court this morning accused of the murder of Shane Boulton.

During a brief hearing at which she was represented by Claire Edgeler, she was remanded in custody to appear before a judge at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday.

Mr Boulton, 21, of Stanley Terrace, Yarmouth, died in James Paget University Hospital, Gorleston, shortly after he was stabbed in the heart during an argument near his home on Sunday evening.

Two other people arrested in connection with the incident, a 29-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman, have been released on police bail.
