A man has been charged with the murder of a man who died two weeks after being attacked in a flat.

Ian Conning, 47, was found with serious injuries at a property on Kelday Close in Kirkby, Merseyside, on 23 October.

He died in hospital on Tuesday. A post-mortem examination found his death was the result of "blunt force trauma".

Ronald Culshaw, 55, of Rushey Hey Road, Kirkby, appeared before Sefton magistrates earlier, charged with Mr Conning's murder.

He is also charged with witness intimidation, and was ordered to appear at Liverpool Crown Court at a later date.

A 50-year-old man, who was arrested on suspicion of murder on Wednesday, remains in custody.
