Two Telford men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a man from Dudley.

Ismaaeel Rehman received serious head injuries during an assault in July 2009 and died 18 months later, aged 24.

Jason Mario Noto, of Powis Place, Dawley Bank, and Robert Mark Jones, from Webb Crescent, Dawley, both 23, appeared before Shrewsbury Crown Court.

Both men have been remanded in custody and will now appear at Stafford Crown Court at a date yet to be set.

Tests have linked Mr Rehman's death to health problems following the 2009 assault, police said.
