Man accused of assisting an offender enters not guilty plea

A MAN has denied helping to dispose of a car belonging to murdered Annan man Paul Taylor.

Marcus Goodfellow of Carlisle faces charges which allege he helped murder suspect Jack Crawley dispose of Taylor’s Vauxhall Corsa between October 17 and October 20 last year.

And that he arranged transport away from incriminating evidence.

The 20-year-old entered a not guilty plea at the city’s Crown Court today, May 3.

Goodfellow, who wore all black to the hearing, spoke only to confirm personal details and make his plea.

He was granted bail with conditions not to contact three named individuals and to report to Carlisle Police Station on a weekly basis.

There is likely to be a further hearing next month and a trial date in October.

Crawley, 20, also of Carlisle, is currently remanded in custody.

He has formally denied murdering Taylor.

A murder trial is scheduled to start at Carlisle Crown Court on October 1.
