Four in court over man found dying in van
Four men were remanded in custody today when they appeared in court charged with murdering a man found dying in the back of a van.
Tom Johnston, 24, Ben Johnston, 26, their father Robert Johnston, 56, all from Pampisford, Cambridge, and Shaun Matthews, 54, from Whittlesford, Cambridge, were charged with killing Shaleem Amar, 33, from Hancocks Mount, Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire.
They appeared this morning at Slough Magistrates' Court and will face a hearing at Reading Crown Court on Tuesday, Thames Valley Police said.
Married father-of-three Mr Amar was found in the back of a white Mercedes Sprinter van on Wednesday after police firearms officers pulled over the vehicle on the A30 in Sunningdale.
A post-mortem examination showed Mr Amar, who had moved to the area with his family just two months ago, died from head injuries.
