A man charged in connection with the David Kingsbury murder has admitted possessing illegal drugs.
Stephen Cody (53) from Colwyn Bay appeared in court accused of assisting an offender after the body of the labourer was found in the Bryn Heulog area of Old Colwyn last month.
Cody spoke to confirm his name, age and address before he pleaded guilty on two charges of possessing cocaine and cannabis at his home in Queens Park on 9th January. The defence said the amount of drugs found was small and consistent with his personal use.
Cody was refused bail by Caernarfon magistrates and remanded in custody – he will appear before a judge at Mold Crown Court on Friday 3rd March.
Detectives also charged another woman with assisting an offender on Thursday – Susannah Buckley (40) from Old Colwyn will appear before magistrates in Llandudno on Monday 20th February.
Dean Cody (30) of no fixed abode was charged with Mr Kingsbury’s murder and is due to enter a plea at Mold Crown Court next month – a trial is due to take place in June. Two other men, Colin Lyness (30) of Old Colwyn and Thomas Revatto (50) of Colwyn Bay, have also been charged with assisting an offender.
