Three men charged with manslaughter

May 28 2021

THREE men are due to appear in court in connection with the death of a South Gloucestershire man.
Craig Wiltshire, who was 43, died in hospital on December 4, 2019, following an incident two weeks earlier.
Avon and Somerset police have announced that three men have been charged with manslaughter in connection with Mr Wiltshire’s death, following an investigation by the force’s Major Crime Investigation Team.
Michael Crooks, aged 50, Nathan Barry Smith, 36, and 26-year-old Ben Crooks have not entered pleas to the manslaughter charge.
Their case was brought before Bristol Crown Court in April for a pre-trial hearing.
Another hearing relating to the case was due to take place at the same court on May 26.
Legal restrictions prevent the reporting of further details at this stage.
