Benidorm death: Two in court over Kirsty Maxwell plunge

Two men are due in court after a Scots woman plunged to her death in Benidorm.

Kirsty Maxwell, from Livingston, West Lothian, died after falling from the tenth floor of the resort’s Apartmentos Payma hotel on April 29, 2017.

The 27-year-old entered a room being used by five men from England before the incident, where she was described as being in a “state of terror”.

Ricky Gammon, 31, Anthony Holehouse, 34, Callum Northridge, 27, and 32-year-old Daniel Bailey appeared at the Palau de Justicia last year, when they denied any involvement in Kirsty’s death.

The lawyer for the men, Roberto Sanchez Martinez, said two of them, who weren’t in the room when Kirsty died, are due to appear in court on Thursday.

He added that they will declare they didn’t see anything in the lead up to Kirsty’s death.

The lawyer also confirmed experts have found no DNA from analysing her nails and hands.

In relation to the DNA tests, Kirsty’s dad, Brian Curry, said: “At this important juncture when we as a family are aware of confidential matters subject to investigation by the court it would be inappropriate for us and our lawyer to comment on what’s being published in newspapers and online.”

The family were desperate to find out what happened to her missing pink T-shirt and denim skirt.

It then emerged Spanish forensic officers destroyed them after her death.

Kirsty’s dad added: “Whilst it’s upsetting for us to read such speculation when we know the court and our lawyer is actively investigating various aspects regarding Kirsty’s death, we continue to maintain our dignity and respect the court processes by avoiding speaking publicly about matters which could be perceived as sensitive potential evidential and process issues.”a
