Outgate man appears in court accused of killing his mother
11:44am Tuesday 4th September 2012 in News
A man appeared before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court yesterday accused of killing his 77-year-old mother.
Robert Adam Pierre Archbold, 48, is charged with murdering Jane Archbold, a retired vet, at the home they shared in Outgate, near Hawkshead.
Archbold, dressed in jeans and a white T-shirt, and with his long beard tied in a plait, spoke only to confirm his name during the nine-minute hearing.
He was not asked to enter a plea.
He will do that when he next appears in court in Carlisle, for a plea and case management hearing in front of a High Court judge on the afternoon of November 13.
In the meantime he was remanded in custody.
His barrister Alison Whalley made no application for bail.
