A MOTORIST accused of killing a mum of two in a car crash more than two years ago has appeared in court.
Deryon King (24), of Bennett Street, Kimberworth, is charged over the death Megan Borrows (pictured), on June 8, 2017.
King appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court last Thursday and denied causing death by driving without due care and attention.
He is also accused of causing death while driving without insurance, to which he is so far yet to entered a plea.
Talented dancer Megan, who was 24 and had two daughters, Rhia and Keira, was described by friend Niamh Kimpton as “the life and soul of the party”.
She added: “Megan had such positive energy, she was always the bouncy one but very laid back and down to earth.”
Last year, a mural by artist Brett Fletcher from a photo of Megan was unveiled at the Great Whites pool hall in Parkgate.
King was released on unconditional bail and is due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on July 25.
