A 37-year-old man appeared in court today charged with the murder of another man in Weston earlier this month.
Martin Hill, of Alfred Street, was at Bristol Crown Court having been charged with the murder of father-of-three Paul Birch.
Mr Birch died in hospital on June 4 of injuries sustained four days after he was found on the doorstep of his Alfred Street home with serious head injuries.
Hill has been remanded in custody until August 30, when he will reappear to make a plea.
