Kevin McKinley died after being shot in the street in Dartford
A couple from Dartford have appeared before Medway magistrates charged in connection with the murder of a 32-year-old man.
Michaela Sargeant, of Overy Street, appeared via video link, charged with killing Kevin McKinley in a street shooting last Tuesday night.
Dressed smartly in a white blouse and black cardigan, the 24-year-old clearly gave her name, address and date of birth.
When asked by the chairman of the bench, Angela Jahed, if she understood the proceedings, she replied: "I do."
She was remanded in custody and will appear at Maidstone Crown Court on Tuesday.
Lewis Wickenden, 25, of the same address, is charged with possessing a firearm, namely a semi-automatic single-barrel shotgun and possession of ammunition, namely shotgun cartridges, both without firearms certificates.
Wickenden, who appeared in the dock at the Chatham court, also faces a charge of assisting an offender relating to murder.
Wearing a pale blue hoodie, Wickenden did not enter pleas and no application was made for bail.
He will return to magistrates on Friday and a date has been set for a hearing at crown court on March 28.
The defendants, described in court as partners, were dealt with separately.
Father-of- three Mr McKinley, of Louvain Road, Stone, was shot in Fulwich Road, Dartford, at about 8pm on Tuesday.
Another man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender was earlier released without charge.
A second man arrested on suspicion of an assault was also released without charge.
Mr McKinley, a married father, was taken to hospital, but later died of his injuries.
The shooting shocked the community, especially Mr McKinley's uncle - Charles McKinley, from Temple Hill - who wept at the scene the morning after the shotting.
Fighting back tears, he said: "My mum rang me last night and said that he'd been shot.
"I thought she meant with a BB gun, but then I found out he'd actually been shot with a real gun."
