A MAN has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man found dead in a flat in Chester.
Police found Andrew MacKenzie Nall’s body at an address in Eversley Park at 8.15pm on Friday and a post-mortem examination confirmed he died of multiple injuries.
Gary Anthony George, 41, of Nicholas Street, was charged with his murder on Tuesday and appeared at Chester Magistrates Court yesterday.
He has also been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Brian James Reilly in Chester on Friday.
George, wearing a blue jogging suit, was not asked to enter a plea to the two charges and spoke only to confirm his name, age and address in the short hearing.
His next court appearance will be on September 24 at Chester Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.
No application for bail was made as George was jailed for 12 weeks by district judge Nicholas Sanders for breaching two community orders.
The court was told George had failed to attend probation appointments on July 11 and July 31.
The community orders had been imposed for a public order offence where George was seen to stamp on another person and for an offence of theft when he stole a handbag from outside a shop.
District Judge Sanders revoked the community orders and sentenced George to 12 weeks for the public order offence and four weeks for the theft. The two sentences will run concurrently.
