A man has been charged with the murder of 33-year-old David Teague in Esh Winning last weekend.

Robert Askew, of Wood View, Esh Winning, was arrested on Saturday after officers and paramedics found Mr Teague having suffered fatal injuries inside Askew’s home.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics, Mr Teague was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Askew was yesterday charged with murder, false imprisonment, and assault.

The 34-year-old will appear in court today (April 28).

Five other individuals who were also arrested on Saturday have been released with no further action.

Mr Teague’s family are being supported by police, and we would like to offer our sincere condolences at this difficult time.
