John Lowe John Lowe appeared at Guildford Crown Court and was remanded in custody

An 82-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murdering his partner and her daughter.

Christine Lee, 66, and her daughter Lucy, 40, were found shot dead at a dog breeding farm near Farnham, Surrey, on Sunday morning.

John Lowe, of Farnham, appeared before Guildford magistrates charged with two counts of murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

He appeared at Guildford Crown Court later and was remanded in custody.

The body of one of the women was found inside the main building at the farm, called Keepers Cottage Stud, while the body of the other woman was found outside, near the animal pens.

Post-mortem examinations concluded both women died as a result of being shot.

Four dogs - three German shepherds and a Labrador - were also found shot and were removed from the farm.

At the crown court hearing, which took place in chambers, Mr Lowe, of Tilford, was remanded in custody to return to the court on 18 March.
