Longdon man's death was tragedy, mother says

The mother of a man who died after being found seriously injured in Worcestershire, has spoken of her loss.

Robin Troughton, 59, of Longdon, was found by police in a "life-threatening condition" at an address in Bushley on 3 April.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in Birmingham, but died there on 22 April.

Roger Sydney Troughton, 74, appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court on 12 May charged with Robin Troughton's murder.

The two men are thought to be cousins.

'Difficult time'

Barbara Troughton said of her son: "Robin was well-known in the local community in and around Longdon and Bushley.

"He attended church regularly and enjoyed watching local cricket matches.

"This has been an extremely difficult time for the family and it is tragic that I have lost my son in such a way. I miss him very much."

Roger Sydney Troughton, of Wood Street Farm, Bushley, did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody after his court appearance to appear before Worcester Crown Court on 16 May.

A second man, in his 50s, who was also arrested at the time of the incident remains on police bail.
