Thomas Cashman, who is 34 years old and lives in West Derby, Liverpool, is also accused of trying to kill Joseph Nee and Cheryl Korbel, Olivia Korbel’s mother.

He was remanded in custody following his appearance at Liverpool Crown Court, where a March trial date was proviso set.

On the night of August 22, when Mr. Nee, a convicted burglar, was being chased into their Dovecot home, Olivia was shot in the chest and her mother was injured.

The court was informed that the anticipated length of any trial would be four weeks, and that a plea hearing would take place on January 10.

In addition, Mr. Cashman of Grenadier Drive, who sat with his head lowered during the proceedings, is charged on two counts with carrying a weapon recklessly.

He was being held in handcuffs in the dock, with five police officers all around him.

Olivia’s parents were in court for both the 13-minute hearing and Mr. Cashman’s earlier meeting with the municipal magistrates.

Paul Russell, a second defendant, was charged with aiding an offender and appeared before the magistrates. He is 40 years old.

According to the evidence shown in court, Mr. Russell, who lives on Snowberry Road in West Derby, helped Mr. Cashman by giving him a ride and getting rid of his clothes.

He was kept in custody until his court appearance on October 31 at Liverpool Crown Court.

On September 15, Olivia’s burial was held in a crowded St. Margaret Mary’s Church just a few blocks from the scene of the shooting.

Her family requested that attendees wear a “splash of pink,” so people donned pink ties, jackets, scarves, and bow ties.

In her eulogy, Ms. Korbel said that her daughter had “touched so many people’s hearts and was cherished and adored by everyone” as she entered the funeral holding a pink teddy bear.
