Murder-charge ex-Brookside star Brian Regan in court
A former soap star appeared in court today charged with the murder of a nightclub doorman who was gunned down in the street.
Brian Regan, 53, who played Terry Sullivan in the Liverpool-based Channel 4 drama Brookside, is accused of the murder of Bahman Faraji.
Father-of-one Mr Faraji, 44, was shot dead as he left the Belgrave public house in Aigburth, Liverpool, where he had been socialising with friends on February 24.
Regan, of St Mary's Road, Garston, Liverpool, who appeared in Brookside for 14 years, was also charged with perverting the course of justice at Liverpool magistrates today.
He appeared in the dock at Liverpool Magistrates alongside co-accused Lee Dodson, 42, of Logfield Drive, Garston, who is also charged with the murder of Mr Faraji.
Both men spoke only to confirm their names and addresses and were remanded in custody until a preliminary hearing at Liverpool Crown Court on April 18.
A third accused, Edward Heffey, 40, of Beloe Street, Dingle, Liverpool, was charged with murder earlier this month and will also appear at the Crown Court that day.
