A man from County Durham has denied murdering his parents in Greater Manchester.

Stephen Seddon is accused of shooting Bob Seddon, 68, and his wife Patricia, 65, at their home in Clough Avenue, Sale.

Appearing via videolink at Manchester Crown Court, Mr Seddon, 45, of Benevente Street, Seaham, spoke only to confirm his name and enter his plea.

He was remanded in custody to appear at the court again in November.

Mr Seddon also pleaded not guilty to a further charge of attempting to murder his parents in March in an incident which saw a car with all three inside plunge into a canal in Timperley.

Mr and Mrs Seddon were discovered dead at their home on 6 July.
