Four people from Cornwall have been jointly charged with the murder of 63-year-old Terry Oldham in Camborne earlier this year.
Police launched a murder inquiry when Mr Oldham was found dead at his home in Dolcoath Road on 1 April. He had sustained serious injuries.
24 year old Aaron Mallen, 43 year old Michelle Casterton, 23 year old Daniel Quinn, all from Falmouth, and 32 year old Richard Rosevear from St Austell, are jointly charged with his murder.
They've been remanded in custody.
The foresty commission has confirmed there are now five suspected infected areas where ash dieback is present in the South west.
One of the latest outbreaks is in the West of Cornwall near Camborne. They are all at recently planted sites and the young trees, that may have come from the same nursery, will be destroyed.
