Two women in court for alleged roles in murder investigation

Two women have appeared in court charged with assisting an offender in relation to the alleged murder of a 25-year-old man earlier this year.

Officers had been called to a property in Tresawle Road, Falmouth, shortly after midnight on Tuesday, May 5, following concerns for the welfare of the local man.

Aaron Pill was found inside the property with serious injuries and, despite the best efforts of emergency services personnel, died at the scene.

Kane Coggin, aged 27, of Meadowbank, Mylor Bridge and Liam Bastow, aged 24, of Avalon Close, Mylor Bridge, are both to stand trial in November accused of his murder. Both have entered not guilty pleas to the charge.

Now, 22-year-old Brea Coggin and 50-year-old Georgia Potter have appeared at Bodmin Magistrates’ Court to face charges of assisting an offender.

Coggin and Potter, both from the Falmouth area, didn’t enter a plea and their cases were sent to the crown court where they will appear on November 20.

They were bailed until that date.

Following his death Mr Pill was described as “a loving young man who would help anyone”.
