Accused trio appear in court

Three people have appeared in Masterton District Court today facing charges related to the brutal beating and death of Featherston man Glen Jones.

Mr Jones, 40, was the victim of a midnight attack and was found bloodied and unconscious in his Fitzherbert St unit in Featherston soon after 12pm on Friday. He died in Wellington Hospital about 5am on Saturday of injuries he received at the hands of several offenders in the attack.

Two women, aged 32 and 22, and a man aged 28 appeared in Masterton District Court this afternoon on related charges and did not enter pleas to a count each of entering a building while armed with intent to commit a crime.

Each of the accused were granted name suppression and were remanded in custody by consent to reappear on Friday.
