Man charged with Newport murder

A 21-YEAR-OLD man from Newport has been charged with murder after a man died on Chepstow Road, Newport, on Tuesday 14 May.

The man, who had been arrested on suspicion of murder, has now been charged with that offence.

He’s been remanded in custody to appear at Newport Magistrates’ Court on Monday 20 May.

The family of Lee Crewe, 36, who died, have previously paid tribute to him, describing him as ‘lovely, inside and out’.

We’re not looking for anyone else in connection with Lee’s death and believe this to be an isolated incident.

Officers were called to Chepstow Road, Newport, on Tuesday 14 May after Lee was found unresponsive with serious injuries.

Paramedics from the Welsh Ambulance Service later confirmed that he had died; his family are receiving support from specialist officers.

Detective Chief Inspector Virginia Davies, the senior investigating officer, said: “Our thoughts remain with Lee Crewe’s family and friends at this time.

“As part of our investigation, we want to speak to anyone who may have any information or details that could assist our investigation, particularly if you’ve not yet spoken to us.

“Our officers remain in the area carrying out enquiries, if you have any concerns or information, please do stop and talk with them.
