TWO men accused of involvement in a Carlisle burglary are to stand trial in the new year.
Sheldon Harley James O’Neil, 20, and 36-year-old Stephen Wilkinson appeared at the city’s crown court earlier today (THURS).
O’Neil and Wilkinson jointly face one charge. This alleges they committed a burglary at an address at Dunmallet Rigg in Carlisle.
It is said this took place just before 6am on September 7.
O’Neil, of Bousteads Grassing, and Wilkinson, of South Henry Street, both Carlisle, each pleaded not guilty to the charge during a short hearing in front of Judge Peter Davies.
Both are now due stand trial in front of a jury. The hearing, which has a two to three-day time estimate, is due to start on March 18.
In the meantime, O’Neil was remanded in custody by Judge Davies and Wilkinson was granted bail.
