FOUR people, including a man, his mother and sister, have appeared in court in connection with a murder probe into the death of Andrew Heath, who was killed in a suspected arson attack on his flat.
Daniel Martin, aged 23, of Canterbury Road in Ronkswood, Worcester, is accused of the murder of 52-year-old Mr Heath.
He appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court in courtroom number one at 11am, to have the charge formally read out to him.
