Liam Holden murder trail to begin on Wednesday
TWO men charged with the murder of a Grays man will face trial this week.
Liam Holden, 35, was killed in the early hours of Sunday, March 10 having been on a night out with his partner, family and friends to celebrate a birthday. He became involved in a dispute with two men, and was assaulted in a car park, near Morrisons, on London Road.
He was taken to Queens Hospital in Romford but died a short time later. The post-mortem examination showed he died of head injuries.
Brothers Owen, 24, and Ryan Wood, 21, from Godman Road, Grays were charged with murder following his death, although both have pleaded not guilty.
The trial at Chelmsford Crown Court is expected to last at least three weeks and will begin on Wednesday, September 18.
The family of Liam Holden has paid tribute to him, describing him as a "gentle giant, much-loved son, brother, dedicated father and partner. Loved by all.”
