Two men have denied murdering a man who died after being shot in a layby in Rhondda Cynon Taff.

Mark Jones, 43, was left in a critical condition in hospital after the shooting on the A4059 near Abercynon in July but died later in hospital.

Stephen Bennett, 52, from Pontypridd, and Edward Bennett, 47, from Mountain Ash, pleaded not guilty at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday.

Both men were remanded in custody and will go on trial in April.
