Can anyone explain to me why a certain couple are able to walk to and from a court room where they are being tried for murder. I wonder why they are not in prison like most people being tried for this sort of crime. And I'm not even going to ask if they can still vote.
When I was involved with the UK court's, it wasn't unusual for a person turning up with the 'worldly' goods, expecting to be given a custodial sentence, and then informed to come back in a month or two's time, after the judge had made a decision.
There was also the cases when people turned up, and were 'sent down', but hadn't bothered to bring their 'worldly' goods. They were usually the one's who said that the police and court's had it in for them, and it was all a misunderstanding!.

I don't know where you got that idea from. Lots of people accused of murder are granted bail. They'll be bailed unless the prosecution convinces a court that there's a real risk they will abscond before the trial date, or that they are likely to commit further offences if free to walk the streets pending trial.
