Man charged with boy's murder

A 30-year-old man will appear in court in east London today charged with the murder of nine-year-old Daniel Handley. Brett Tyler, of no fixed address, is the second man to be charged with killing Daniel, whose body was found near Bristol in March, six months after he disappeared from his home in Beckton, east London.

Timothy Morss, from Leyton,east London, appeared before magistrates in Stratford on 2 June charged with Daniel's murder and was remanded in custody for four weeks. Mr Tyler will appear at the same court. A 58-year-old man appeared at the same time charged with helping Mr Morss to evade police, but he could not be named because of a court order covering any future suspects facing questioning in connection with the murder.
