Two men appear in court charged with murder 14 years after assault in Peterborough
Two men have appeared in court to answer charges of murder in connection with an assault in Peterborough more than 14 years ago.
Shane Wright, 31, of HMP Swaleside, and Kieron Hennessey, 32, of Wesleyan Road, Peterborough, have both been remanded in custody following separate court appearances at Peterborough and Cambridge Magistrates’ Courts in the past week.
On 6 September, 2006, Wright and Hennessey attacked 46-year-old Paul Machin in Cherry Orton Road. They were later convicted of committing grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent and both served prison sentences.
However, Mr Machin, who had suffered irreversible brain damage and paralysis as a result of the assault, died in 2019.
