Two men have been charged with the murder of another homeless man in Swansea, and their case will begin in April. A further man was charged with assisting in the crime, having swapped a pair of his shoes for a bloodstained pair from one of the accused.
David Williams, known as "Little Dai", was 26 years old when he was found in the centre of Swansea just before 4am on 7 January. He had received multiple injuries to his face. Darren Rigdon, 33, and Christopher Hart, 37, both of no fixed abode, have pleaded not guilty to his murder. Although they have different surnames, the two accused are brothers. Christopher Hughes, 31, was also charged in assisting, having changed shoes with Rigdon.
Williams was a regular at the Swansea Cyrenians drop-in centre. The centre manager, Christine Skelton told the South Wales Evening Post: "He was a really nice, kind guy, and he had a great sense of humour. We cannot believe what has happened."
