Bennett, 46, who appeared via video link, had originally been accused of wounding him with intent but now faces a murder charge.

Her barrister Jason Smith did not apply for bail and the Recorder of Liverpool, Judge Andrew Menary, KC, further remanded her in custody until June 9 when she is expected to enter her plea. A provisional date for her trial, estimated to last a week, has been fixed to begin on September 4.

A 44-year-old man and a 49-year-old woman, both from Liverpool, who were previously arrested in connection with this investigation, remain on conditional bail pending further enquiries.
