Homeless man accused of murder cover-up

November 8th 2011


The trial of a homeless man accused of assisting in the cover-up of a murder continues in Swansea. Christopher Hughes, 32 years old, was charged with changing shoes with one of a pair accused of murder, in order to impede the police investigation.

Hughes is accused of assisting brothers, Darren Rigdon, 33, and Christopher Hart, 37, who were charged with the murder of another homeless man, David 'Little Dai’ Williams, in January this year (see The Pavement February 2011). Hughes changed his shoes for a bloody pair belonging to Rigdon, after Williams had been murdered outside the Iceland in Swansea.

Hughes told the prosecution that it had been done “but not to cover up the fact that a crime had been committed,” and that when he saw Williams lying on the floor near his assailants, he thought he was sleeping. The trial continues.
