A fourth man arrested over the death of a businessman who was shot at his home has been released under investigation.

Guy Hedger, 61, was killed in the early hours of 30 April at his home in Castlewood in Ashley near Ringwood.

The 45-year-old man from Poole was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary on Thursday.

Three other men appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Tuesday accused of murder.

Kevin Downton, 40, of Winterborne Stickland, near Blandford, Jason Baccus, 41, and Scott Keeping, 44, both of Verney Close, Bournemouth, are due at the same court on 26 July again to enter pleas.

A 40-year-old woman previously arrested has now been released under investigation, police said.

Mr Hedger was shot when at least two intruders entered his home and died after being taken to hospital.

Police said a post-mortem examination concluded he died as a result of gunshot wounds.
