A Wrexham man found guilty of the murder of an acquaintance has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Barry John Bagnall, 42 of Trevenna Way, Caia Park was convicted of murdering 60 year old Terrence Edwards of Pont Wen, Caia Park and also of committing an act intending to pervert the course of justice.

Mr Edwards’ body was discovered at his home address on June 1st last year.

Speaking after sentencing, Detective Inspector Chris Bell said: “This was a case of cold blooded murder, where the victim was struck twice to the head by forceful blows, and left for dead.

“This has been a long and particularly challenging investigation. I would like to thank the public and witnesses that gave evidence in court.

“I hope today’s sentence will provide solace and some form of closure to Terry’s family and close friends.”
