THE case of two people who are accused of two murders has been adjourned.

A 15-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and 41-year-old Paul Clarke of Mountbatten Court were due to appear at Ipswich Crown Court today to enter their pleas.

They are alleged to have murdered Rosalyn Hunt, 41, and Des Thorpe, 43, in separate incidents. Ms Hunt was found dead at her flat in Victoria Street, off London Road, in Ipswich on August 9. Mr Thorpe's body was found in an upstairs flat in Limerick Close, in the Whitehouse area of town, on August 10.

John Grimwood, 27, of Canham Street, Ipswich, was also due in court today to enter a plea after also being charged with murdering Ms Hunt.

However, the case was adjourned until a later date due to weather-related problems.
