The brother of a deputy churchwarden accused of the murder and attempted murder of two neighbours has been charged with fraud.

Tom Field, 23, of Wellingborough Road, Olney, Buckinghamshire, is accused of fraud by false representation.

He will appear before magistrates in High Wycombe in December.

English teacher Mr Farquhar, 69, died on 26 October 2015 and ex-headmistress Ms Moore-Martin, 83, died on 12 May 2017, in the Buckinghamshire village of Maids Moreton.

Thames Valley Police launched a double murder inquiry in January.

Mr Field and Mr Smith, of Penhalvean, Redruth, in Cornwall, are also charged with conspiracy to murder Ms Moore-Martin and Mr Farquhar and with fraud and burglary.
