Five people have so far have appeared in court and been remanded into custody in connection with the tragic deaths of 15-year-old Mason and 16-year-old Max in Knowle West on the night of Saturday 27 January.

  • Antony Snook, 44, from Hartcliffe, was charged with murder on Wednesday.
  • Two boys aged 15 and 16 – who legally cannot be named at this time as they are juveniles – were also subsequently charged with the same offence.
  • Bailey Westcott, 22, from Bishopsworth, and Jamie Ogbourne, aged 26, from Bristol,  were charged with two counts of assisting an offender.
