Police statement following Jim Ward's death

Michael Chudley, 62, formerly of Rowde, has been charged with attempted murder. A police source said this charge will change to one of murder.

Our thoughts are with Jim's family and friends at this time. Jim was a popular and well-respected man. At the time of his death his family was with him. And they have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time.

– Ian Saunders, Det Chief Inspector, Wiltshire Police
