Wrexham murder suspect caught after robbery


North Wales Police

A man suspected by police of killing a disabled man in Wrexham has been arrested.

25 year-old Jordan Davidson was caught in Flint in the early hours of Wednesday morning, after a manhunt was launched in the wake of the death of Nicholas Churton, whose body was found at a house on Crescent Close in Wrexham on Monday.

Davidson, who is accused of carrying out a robbery in Chester on Tuesday night, was arrested along with a 19 year-old woman and a 51 year-old man – they are being held at St Asaph police station. Meanwhile, a 27 year-old Wrexham man, arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender remains in police custody.

Two people from Old Colwyn have been released on bail pending further inquiries – a 35 year-old woman and a 27 year-old man were arrested in a raid by armed police at a house on Llysfaen Road on Monday evening.

Detectives said Mr Churton (67), who ran a wine bar and restaurant in Rossett, lived alone as a vulnerable, partially disabled man and ”died in horiffic circumstances”. A post mortem on Tuesday concluded he had died from significant head trauma.

Detective Superintendent Iestyn Davies said: ”It is my belief that Mr Churton was killed sometime between 2.45pm on Thursday and midnight on Friday March 24. I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who heard or witnessed a disturbance in Crescent Close in that time.”

Anyone with information about the suspicious death should contact police on 101, quoting reference no. V042465, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
