Two men deny Mountain Ash layby shotgun 'murder'

The shooting happened at an area known locally as Lletty Turner Bends

Two brothers will stand trial accused of murdering a man who was shot in a layby and later died.

Stephen Bennett, 51, from Pontypridd, and Edward Bennett, 47, of Mountain Ash, pleaded not guilty at Cardiff Crown Court to the murder of Mark Jones, 43.

Mr Jones was found with shotgun wounds in his Audi A3 on the A4059 near Mountain Ash in July last year. He died two months later.

A trial date was set for 4 October.
