Pensioner Mugged: Teens In Court Over Death
Two teenage boys charged with murdering a partially-sighted pensioner who died following a mugging have been remanded in custody.
The teenagers, aged 14 and 15, from Southall, were arrested on Wednesday and appeared at Uxbridge Youth Court on Friday morning.
The pair, who are too young to be named, have been accused of murdering 85-year-old Paula Castle in Greenford, west London.
They have also been charged with two counts of robbery related to a separate incident.
Mrs Castle, who was registered blind and lived alone, fell to the ground after she was allegedly robbed in an alleyway off Oldfield Lane South at 1.50pm on Monday. She died in hospital the following day.
A post-mortem found she died of head injuries.
A card attached to a bunch of flowers at the alley's entrance read: "RIP. What a senseless waste of a good life xxx."
