Shannon mother accused of kidnap 
 
Karen Matthews will go on trial on 11 November
The mother of Shannon Matthews, the girl who went missing for several weeks earlier this year, has been charged with her kidnap and false imprisonment.

The new charges were revealed as Karen Matthews appeared at Leeds Crown Court.

The 32-year-old, of Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, denies those charges and an earlier charge of perverting the course of justice.

Michael Donovan, 40, also from Dewsbury, pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnap and false imprisonment.

The uncle of Mrs Matthews' former partner, Craig Meehan, also now faces a charge of perverting the course of justice, which he denies.

Mrs Matthews did not enter a plea on child neglect charges.

Remanded in custody

Nine-year-old Shannon was found on 19 February, 24 days after she went missing following a school swimming trip.

The schoolgirl was found in Batley Carr, less than a mile from her Dewsbury Moor home.

Reading out the details of the kidnap charge to Mrs Matthews and Mr Donovan, the court clerk said: "On the 19th day of February, 2008, you unlawfully and by force or fraud took or carried away Shannon Matthews against her will."

The false imprisonment charge was read to them as: "Between the 18th day of February 2008 and the 15th day of March 2008 you unlawfully and injuriously imprisoned and detained Shannon Matthews against her will."

The charge of perverting the course of justice said the accused "did a series of acts which had a tendency to pervert the course of public justice and that you reported to the West Yorkshire Police that Shannon Matthews was a missing person when you knew where she was and you were keeping her from being found".

Both were remanded in custody until their trial on 11 November.

I still would love to know the logic in the mothers mind that made her think this was ever a good, workable, idea.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

same here.......... i just cant understand how they thought they would actually get away with it all... the first place the police look is to the family and extended family and friends......
 if you want or need money...the idea is to work for it NOT hide one  of your kids away for nearly a month and tell people she ahs been kidknapped... what a wate of police resourses....... if  i had my way they would all be charged with wasting poilce time too and made to pay for that as well in one way or another

they make they sick.........   what a load of retards in the first place to even think  that this badly concieved idea would work

Because they're a bunch of f'wits. Just seeing them on TV you got the impression the gene pool was pretty shallow.

The sad thing is there are thousands of families in the UK like this, and they all seem to produce loads of young f'wits

The former partner of Shannon Matthews' mother has told a court indecent images of children found on his computer had nothing to do with him.

Craig Meehan, 22, is accused of having 134 indecent images on a computer at the home he shared with Karen Matthews in Dewsbury Moor, West Yorkshire.

Police found the images during their search for missing Shannon Matthews.

Prosecutor David Holderness told Dewsbury magistrates Mr Meehan had pointed the finger at other people.

He said Mr Meehan claimed other people had used his password-protected computer

NO !!!!  and dont try to insinuate that that is what i meant..... i have been a single mother on benefits and would never dream  of saying that.......... i was referring to shannons family as well you know... how many kids did she have? mostly by different  men...only 2 had the same dad and neither her nor the person she was married to worked or looked like they had the inclination to work...

not all of us like being contraversial russell

Ok ... but it is what you said.  I have not "insinuated" anything. I've quoted you word for word and asked if there is an issue I have missed.
 
I do agree with you on Shannon's family.
