Two men have appeared in court accused of the murders of two men whose bodies were found 20 miles apart.

Gabriel Bhengu, 26, and Jabu Mbowane, 25, of Wolverhampton are further accused of conspiracy to rob.

The body of Andrew Owen, 42, was found in Sedgley, West Midlands, on 15 April. Neil Williams, 41, of Telford, was found in nearby Stirchley on 6 April.

A 21-year-old woman, Kashia Allen, also of Wolverhampton, is also charged with conspiracy to rob.

Both murder victims are thought to have been robbed while walking home from public houses.

Mr Bhengu and Mr Mbowane, South African nationals who live in Court Road, Whitmore Reans, and Ms Allen, of Crosby Close, Farndale, have been remanded in custody until 15 May.

All three appeared at Dudley Magistrates' Court on Saturday.
