Gary Marshall is charged with causing the deaths of William and Brenda Skears by careless/inconsiderate driving on the A508 in Roade on November 16, 2018.

His defence solicitor described the accident which killed William, 85, and Brenda, 89, as a tragedy at Northampton Magistrates’ Court.
Marshall was granted unconditional bail and is due to appear at Northampton Crown Court on November 29.
