Three men from Port Talbot accused of murdering a man in Baglan will deny the charge, a judge has been told.

Paul David Evans, 49, Shaun Rogers, 24, and William Rogers, 45, were at Swansea Crown Court after being charged with the murder of David John Eves.

Defence barristers told Judge Keith Thomas that all three men would enter pleas of not guilty at a further hearing on 28 May.

Mr Eves, 43, from Sandfields, was found dead in Pentyla on 10 February.

Mr Evans, of Baglan Road, Port Talbot; Mr Rogers, of Farmfield Avenue, Port Talbot; and Mr Rogers, of no fixed address, were further remanded in custody.

There were no applications for bail.
