Two more men have been charged with murder following the fatal shooting of council worker Ashley Dale in Liverpool.
Merseyside Police said Niall Barry, 26, and Sean Zeisz, 27, have been remanded in custody and will appear at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
Ms Dale, 28, was found with a gunshot wound in her garden in the Old Swan area on 21 August last year.
She was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
It brings the number of people charged with the murder of Ms Dale to four.
James Witham, 40, of Ashbury Road, Huyton, and Joseph Peers, 28, of Woodlands Road, Roby, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court accused of the council worker’s murder earlier this month.
At her funeral in September, Ms Dale was described by her family as a “rising star” who “had her whole life ahead of her”.
Ms Dale, an environmental health officer for Knowsley Council, is not believed to have been the intended target of the shooting.
