Two in court over Coventry brothers ‘hit-and-run’ deaths

A man and woman have appeared in court charged with causing the death of two young brothers by dangerous driving, following a suspected hit-and-run crash in Coventry.

Corey, six, and Casper Platt-May, two, were on a family trip to a park on Thursday when they were hit by a car.

Robert Brown, 53, and Gwendoline Harrison, 41, spoke only to confirm their names and addresses at Coventry Magistrates’ Court.

They have been remanded in custody.

Mr Brown, of Attwood Crescent, Wyken, is also charged with driving while disqualified and without a licence or insurance.

Ms Harrison, of Triumph Close, Wyken, also faces an allegation of common assault.

They are due to appear at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday 22 March.

Corey and Casper were with their mother and a group of up to nine children being helped across Macdonald Road at about 14:00 GMT on Thursday when they were struck.

They were taken to hospital with severe injuries but Casper could not be revived and died a short time later.
