It is expected to last for three weeks and will hear evidence of the incident at Culcheth Linear Park on Saturday 11 February, where 16-year-old Brianna was killed.
A girl from Warrington and a boy from Leigh, both aged 15, were arrested the following day and later charged with her murder.
DCI Adam Waller, who has been the Senior Investigating Officer in the case, said: “I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to the community of Culcheth for their support in relation to the investigation.
“We have been inundated with pieces of information from members of the community wanting to help and assist the enquiry. Many of our officers have been approached to offer their best wishes to us and, especially, to Brianna’s family.
“I know that the family have also been overwhelmed by the messages of support, positivity and the compassion across the country and beyond – and the thoughts of everyone at the Constabulary remains firmly with them.”
