Rigby was killed in a daylight attack a couple of hundred yards from the Royal Artillery Barracks on May 22.

London attack: Probing the suspects
Adebowale, who was wearing a red T-shirt and pink jogging bottoms, sat with his head down and arms crossed during his video link appearance, while Adebolajo looked straight at the camera.
The latter wore a gray, long-sleeve sweatshirt and had his left arm strapped in a bandage from his wrist to just above the elbow.
Both suspects were hospitalized after their arrest.
The November 18 trial date is preliminary and could change, the court said.
