Lee Rigby widow in tears as two men deny murder in Woolwich
THE widow of soldier Lee Rigby broke down in tears today as two men denied his murder.
Rebecca Rigby watched tearfully as Michael Adebolajo, 28, from Essex, and Michael Adebowale, 22, from Greenwich, appeared at the Old Bailey via videolink.
They also each denied attempting to murder a police officer on May 22, the day of Fusilier Rigby's death, and conspiracy to murder a police officer on or before that day.
The father-of-one, 25, died from multiple cut and stab wounds when he was attacked in Artillery Place as he returned to Woolwich barracks.
Both wearing red T-shirts and pale trousers, the pair appeared from separate rooms for today's hearing.
Adebowale sat in front of an HMP Belmarsh sign.
A trial date has been set for November 18.
