A photo has emerged of a tragic 15-year-old girl beaming with joy as she sits next to the teenage brother accused of murdering her at a caravan park.
The picture, which was taken nearly two years ago, shows Matthew Selby, of Windermere Crescent, Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, with sister Amanda Selby, 15.
19-year-old Matthew has been accused of murdering Amanda at Ty Mawr Holiday Park, Towyn, a seaside resort popular with families, on Saturday, July 31.
The photos, from Matthew's Facebook profile, appear to show the siblings surrounded by stage performers.
Selby can be seen with his arm around his younger sister as they smile at the camera.
The teen appeared at Llandudno Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, August 3, charged with her murder.
District judge Gwyn Jones at Llandudno court remanded him in custody until Wednesday, August 4 at Mold Crown Court.
Prosecutor James Neary asked for the case to be sent to the crown court and said there was no entitlement to bail.
Defence solicitor Simon Sargent said during a hearing, which lasted less than two minutes: "I have nothing to add, save to say this a tragic case."

Selby, wearing a grey sweatshirt and between two guards in the glass-fronted dock, spoke only to confirm his name, address, and date of birth and to confirm that he understood the charge.
No details of the allegation were given and police haven't revealed the cause of death.
Police were called to a "domestic disturbance" at Ty Mawr Holiday Park in Towyn, near Abergele, Wales, on Saturday afternoon.
The incident reportedly took place inside a caravan at the site and left holiday park bosses in shock.
North Wales Police previously urged: "We would ask the public not to speculate about this incident on social media as this is an active investigation."
An air ambulance helicopter had landed on the busy A548 coast road which runs alongside the caravan and campsite and a large number of police officers had been at the scene.
A spokesman at the park said at the weekend: "We are shocked and saddened by this tragic incident.
"Ty Mawr is a 100-acre family park which welcomes tens of thousands of happy holidaymakers every year. This was an isolated and unprecedented incident which took place inside a caravan."
