He is also charged with the attempted murder of convicted burglar Joseph Nee, who was chased by a gunman into Olivia's home.

Cashman is further accused of attempting to murder Olivia's mum Cheryl after she was shot in the wrist and two counts of possession of a firearms with intent to endanger life.

The mum watched from the public gallery today as Cashman appeared at Liverpool Magistrates' Court alongside Paul Russell, 40, who is accused of assisting an offender.

Both men spoke only to confirm their names, dates of birth and addresses during the brief hearing.

They were remanded in custody with Cashman due to appear at Liverpool Crown Court at 2pm today.

Russell will appear at the same court on October 31.

Cashman and Russell were charged on Saturday after weeks of desperate appeals to find the suspected gunman.

It also came after Crimestoppers pledged their biggest-ever reward of £200,000 to find the killer.

Police have made 11 arrests in total relating to Olivia's death with nine suspects later bailed.

The bloodbath unfolded when intended target Nee rushed into Olivia’s home to escape a gunman.

Mum Cheryl appeared to have opened the front door to see what the commotion was when the 35-year-old forced his way inside.

The shooter then followed and began peppering the home with bullets – hitting Cheryl first then Olivia, who was standing behind her mum.

Tragically, Olivia was declared dead shortly after, while her mum was treated for a gunshot wound to the wrist.

Intended target Nee was treated for multiple wounds to his upper body and has since been recalled to jail for breaching the terms of his release.

Olivia was laid to rest on September 15 at St Margaret Mary's Church in Dovecot close to where the shooting happened.

Her mum told mourners wearing a “splash of pink” in the youngster's memory how she “touched so many people's hearts and was loved and adored by everyone”.

Cheryl added: “I will never say goodbye but what I will say is goodnight, love you, see you in the morning.”
