Three charged over golf course body

Three men have been charged over the murder of Stefan Welch

Three men have been charged in connection with the murder of a man whose badly-burnt body was found on a golf course.

Stefan Welch, 37, was discovered by golfers as they walked between the 17th and 18th holes at Dyke Golf Club on the outskirts of Brighton just before noon on September 4.

He probably died from a blow to the head, a post-mortem examination found.

Sean Cirus Iran, 21, of St Richards Road, Portslade, Brighton, has been charged with the murder of Mr Welch.

He was also charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice with Babak Iran, 44, and Navid Iran, 23, of the same address.

All three will appear at Brighton Magistrates' Court on Monday, Sussex Police said.

Mr Welch, who lived at the Phase One hostel in Oriental Place, Brighton, was known to police and was identified after a DNA sample provided a match on the national database.

His family has spoken of their anguish, saying words could not adequately describe their heartbreak at his death.
