Two men have appeared in court charged with murder following the death of a man after a serious assault in Rhondda Cynon Taff.

Wayne Letherby, 42, died on 17 April following the attack in De Winton Street, Tonypandy.

The two charged men, both aged 26, spoke only to confirm their names and addresses at Pontypridd Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

They were remanded in custody to appear at Merthyr Crown Court on Thursday.

A man and a woman, who were also arrested in connection with the incident, have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

In a tribute on Monday, Mr Letherby's family said they had been left devastated by his death and described him as a "hard working man who loved all of his family".
