A TEENAGER appeared before Swindon magistrates this morning charged with the murder of Jordan Taylor in Trowbridge.

Hayden Maslen, 18, of Park Street, Trowbridge, only spoke to confirm his name, date of birth and address during the proceedings which took less than two minutes.

Standing before magistrates just after 10.30am, Maslen, dressed in a dark grey suit, entered no plea and was remanded in custody.

He is due to appear at Bristol Crown Court on Wednesday.

It is alleged that Maslen murdered Jordan Taylor, 25, following an incident in the early hours of March 12.

He also faces a separate charge of wounding a 24-year-old man with intent.
