A FORMER binman is due in court in Leeds today accused of murdering twin sisters and an elderly couple.
The bodies of the 27-year-old Sanderson twins were found in a flat in Camblesforth, near Selby, North Yorkshire, on July 18 last year.
Just a few hours later, retired railway surveyor James Britton, 80, and his 82-year-old wife, Joan, were discovered dead in their large detached home at Strensall, near York.
Mark Hobson, 34, of New Lane, Selby, is charged with killing his girlfriend Claire Sanderson and her sister Diane last summer along with the two pensioners.
Earlier this year his lawyer, Jeremy Richardson QC, told a hearing Hobson admitted responsibility for the killings of all four victims.
The barrister added: "There is no denial that he was responsible for the killings."
But Hobson has yet to enter formal pleas. He was due at the plea and directions hearing at Leeds Crown Court today.
