Inmates remanded on murder charge
Thursday 02 June 1994
TWO MEN serving life sentences appeared before magistrates in Peterborough yesterday charged with the murder of Leslie Bailey, a triple child killer. Bailey, 40, who was serving life for his part in the sex killings of Jason Swift, 14, Barry Lewis, six, and seven-year-old Mark Tildesley, was found strangled in his cell at Whitemoor prison in Cambridgeshire, last October.
His body was discovered in the isolation cell, with a makeshift ligature nearby. A post-mortem examination revealed that he had been strangled.
Detectives moved into the jail and interviewed all inmates and officers who could have come into contact with the prisoner.
Yesterday there was tight security as John Brookes, 30, who is now serving his life sentence at Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire, and Michael Cain, 26, who was moved to Long Lartin jail in Hereford and Worcester, arrived in court.
They appeared in the dock in the company of six prison officers said nothing except to confirm their names and dates of birth.
Magistrates adjourned the case and remanded the men in custody until 29 June.
