THE family of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel have arrived at court for the trial of a man accused of her murder.
The youngster was fatally shot at her home in Dovecot, Liverpool, just after 10pm on August 22 last year.
Her mum, Cheryl Korbel, 46, was injured in the shooting as the gunman chased convicted burglar Joseph Nee into their home.
This morning, she walked into Manchester Crown Court wearing a pink ribbon in memory of her daughter.
Thomas Cashman, 34, denies the murder of Olivia, the attempted murder of Nee and the wounding with intent of Cheryl.
Cashman, of West Derby, Liverpool, also denies two counts of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.
