CCTV footage was shown to the jury this afternoon that showed murder accused Charlotte Collinge, Kelvin Dale and Stephen Shreeves in the pub just hours before Collinge’s husband was killed.

The three are on trial at Nottingham Crown Court over the death of 61-year-old Cliff Collinge at the home he shared with Charlotte on Warsop’s Sandy Lane.

Mr Collinge was beaten to death with a guitar and a joiner’s sash clamp shortly after 10pm on 8th October 2011. He was found in a pool of blood in his kitchen.

The prosecution says Charlotte Collinge enticed the other two men to her house for sex, and while there, they launched a ‘ferocious’ attack.

Mrs Collinge (48), Dale (30) of Forest Road, Warsop and Shreeves (43) or Laurel Avenue, Warsop, all deny murder.

During the trial today Pauline Jarvis - a CCTV evidence investigator for Nottinghamshire Police - took to the stand to talk through footage of the three taken on the day of Mr Collinge’s murder.

CCTV showed Charlotte Collinge in the Crate and Grapes pub in Warsop at around 7pm. Dale and Shreeves are seen entering the premises minutes later, sitting with Collinge and other revellers in the pub.

Collinge is then seen to be acting in a flirtacious manner, flashing her underwear and sitting on one man’s knee.

Charlotte Collinge is then escorted from the premises by the landlord because of her behaviour.

The three accused are then captured heading to another pub, a local Co-Op store and other cameras heading back to her home on Sandy Lane.

She is then seen with another man a short time later, which prosecutor Peter Joyce QC, says was to buy cocaine, before returning home.

The prosecution claim Collinge, Dale and Shreeves were high on cocaine when they attacked Mr Collinge.

The trial continues.
