Man charged with carer's murder

A man will appear in court tomorrow charged with the murder of a 50-year-old man.

Kevin Hier was found collapsed at a home in Heol yr Ysgol, Tondu, Bridgend, last Wednesday.

Mr Hier, who was a carer for his elderly mother, was taken to the Prince of Wales Hospital, but was pronounced dead the same day.

Less than 24 hours later, South Wales Police confirmed it had arrested a man in connection with the death - and continued to question him at their station in Cardiff Bay into the weekend.

Officers have now confirmed that 26-year-old Tondu man James Curtis has been charged with murder.

Curtis, of Heol yr Ysgol, Ynysawdre, will appear at Bridgend Magistrates' Court tomorrow.
