A 17-YEAR-OLD charged with the murder of Weston man Mark Roberts appeared in court today (Thurs).

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Bristol Crown Court by video link.

At the hearing it was decided to adjourn the case until the same court on November 4, at which bail matters will be discussed, and he will remain in custody.

Mark’s parents spoke of their ‘unimaginable loss’ in a statement and an interview with his fiancée was published in the Mercury today.
