A BOGNOR Regis man charged with the murder of a Pagham man has been refused bail.

Walter Brazil, 41, of Collyer Avenue, appeared at Lewes Crown Court this morning (Monday, May 20) where he was denied bail.

Brazil appeared in connection with the death of 20-year-old Charlie Hancock, of Nyetimber Lane, following an incident in Rowan Way, North Bersted, on the night of Monday, May 13.

Brazil will next appear at the same court on August 1 for a plea and case management hearing.

His trial, yet to be fixed, is expected to last at least two weeks.
