A MAN accused of the murder of a former solider 13 years ago has been found not guilty.

Neil Sutherland of Kyte Way, Trowbridge who previously served a four-year prison sentence for grievous bodily harm for the same attack has been acquitted of murder.

Father-of-three Paul Mills suffered brain injuries in the attack in Southwick, Trowbridge in July 2006 and died aged 44 at his home in Heytesbury, near Warminster, in March 2017.

It was alleged he died from epilepsy brought on by the attack injuries, but today at Salisbury Crown Court the jury delivered a not guilty verdict.
