A woman has appeared in court charged with the murder of Sunderland teenager Scott Pritchard.
Karen Tunmore, 36, of Killingworth, North Tyneside, appeared at Bedlington Magistrates Court - sitting at Newcastle Crown Court - on Saturday.
The teen’s death sparked one of the biggest manhunts in Wearside’s history when he was found bludgeoned outside his Sunderland home in 2004 and left to die.
At the time his leg was in plaster after suffering a bad injury and he could only walk with crutches.
Scott was confirmed dead on arrival at Sunderland Royal Infirmary, aged just 19, and detectives have been investigating the case ever since.
Nobody was convicted in relation to the case at the time, but the investigation has remained open.
