Mold Crown Court will be the venue for two prominent murder hearings today.
Clive Sharp will be sentenced after he pleaded guilty to killing Irish vet Catherine Gowing.
Mark Bridger will go on trial after he denied murdering five-year-old April Jones.
It is the second time the defendants have appeared at Mold Crown Court on the same day, following hearings on January 14.
Sharp, 46, of Bethesda, admitted murdering 37-year-old Catherine Gowing, who worked at Evans Veterinary Surgery in Mold.
Miss Gowing, from County Offaly in Ireland, had not been seen since a sighting of her on CCTV at Asda in Queensferry on Friday, October 12.
North Wales Police’s largest ever search operation ensued and some of Miss Gowing’s remains were found in two separate areas, at Sealand and at the River Dee close to Chester.
Miss Gowing’s sister Emma Maguire attended January’s hearing and is expected to sit through sentencing today.
Meanwhile Bridger, 47, will be tried for the murder of the Powys schoolgirl, which he denied, but accepted he was probably responsible for her death.
In January, he entered not guilty pleas to charges of murder, abduction and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
April was last seen outside her home on the Bryn-y-Gog housing estate in Machynlleth, Powys, on October 1.
April’s parents, Coral and Paul, are also expected to attend today.
Journalists have travelled from Ireland to hear the fate of the man who murdered Miss Gowing.
