A 19-YEAR-OLD woman has appeared before Blackburn magistrates charged with the murder of Bilal Saddique on Monday.

Sarah Jade Willis, of Kings Road, Blackburn, was sent in custody to Preston Crown Court. She spoke only to confirm her name, address and date of birth.

The defendant did not have the right to apply for bail in the magistrates court and the hearing lasted less than two minutes.

Mr Saddique, 29, died from a stab wound to the leg following an incident at a house in Revidge Road.
