Fresh questioning of Soham suspects
Maxine Carr and Ian Huntley
Maxine Carr and Ian Huntley face no fresh charges
Two people charged in connection with the disappearance and deaths of Cambridgeshire schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, have been quizzed again by detectives.

Maxine Carr and her boyfriend Ian Huntley have since returned to prison after what police described as "routine" questioning.

School caretaker Mr Huntley, 28, is accused of murdering the two girls and of conspiring with Carr to pervert the course of justice.

Ms Carr, 25, a former teaching assistant at the girls' school in Soham, is charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Court date

Neither has been charged with any new offences following Friday's questioning, which police say was related to the offences they are accused of committing.

It is not known whether either of them will be questioned again in the near future.

Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, both 10, disappeared from their home town of Soham on 4 August.

Their bodies were found in a ditch at Lakenheath, Suffolk, on 17 August.

Mr Huntley is being held at Woodhill Prison, near Milton Keynes, pending a trial.

Ms Carr is being held at Holloway prison, north London, pending a trial.

They are both due to appear at Norwich Crown Court on 15 November.
