Three charged over golf course body
Three men have been remanded in custody when they appeared in court 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, is charged with the murder of Mr Welch.
He was also charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice along with Babak Iran, 44, and Navid Iran, 23, of the same address.
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.
The three charged men will next appear at Lewes Crown Court on Wednesday, a spokesman for Sussex Police said.
