Plea Expected Later This Year At Crown Court For Murder Suspect

A man accused of murdering a father of two will appear at Preston Crown Court for plea hearing later this year.

Connor Reece, a 24-year-old man who has been charged with the murder of Lee, appeared at Preston Crown Court today, but, did not enter a plea.

According to the Lancashire Evening Post, Reece has been remanded back into custody and will appear back at the court on December 2nd.

Alongside Reece, a number of other arrests have been made in connection with Lee’s death; including, a charge for Wayne McCreery of perverting the course of justice.

Lee, a 29-year-old from Lancaster, was found with a serious stab wound to his leg at a property on Tarnsyke Road.

He was initially taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary for treatment before being moved to Royal Preston Hospital where, unfortunately, he passed away.

Recently, two 17-year-olds have also been arrested on suspicion of murder and released while investigations are ongoing.
