A man has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of 75 year-old Warwick resident William Heathcote.

Steven Ray Jones, 24, of no fixed abode, has also been charged with conspiring to pervert the course of justice and witness intimidation. He will appear at Leamington Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday March 9 2016.

A 17-year-old girl, two 18-year-old men and a 19-year old woman, all from the Warwick and Leamington Spa area, will also appear on that date, each facing allegations of conspiring to pervert the course of justice after receiving a postal requisition.

William Heathcote collapsed in Pickard Street in November 2014. He was rushed to Warwick Hospital where he later died.
