Ilkeston murder: mother and son in court together

A 23-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with the murder of Ilkeston man Mick Moss.

The man was charged late last night after being arrested at the weekend. He was due before Magistrates in Derby this morning (Monday February 4) and is the second man to be charged with the dad-of-six’s murder.

Jamie Elliott, 26, of North Street, Alfreton, appeared before magistrates in Derby on Saturday, charged with Mr Moss’s murder.

Elliott spoke only to confirm his date of birth and address when he appeared at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court. He wore a black hoodie and grey trousers.

Alan Chapman, 26, of Burdett Lodge, Bath Street, Derby, and his mother, Colette Booth, 46, of Mill Street, Ilkeston, also appeared, charged with conspiracy to commit GBH.

Chapman, dressed in a white polo shirt and black tracksuit bottoms, cried in court. He was supported by his girlfriend, also in tears, in the public gallery.

Booth, of Mill Street, Ilkeston, was dressed in a jumper and black jeans.

All were remanded in custody and will next appear at Nottingham Crown Court tomorrow (Tuesday February 4) at 10am.

A 24-year-old man arrested on Thursday was released without charge.

Mr Moss, 48, was found injured at his house in Canal Street at 9pm on Wednesday.

He was treated by paramedics but died in the ambulance on the way to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre. A post-mortem examination revealed he died from injuries suffered during an assault.
