TWO people have been charged with murder after a landlord, who was badly hurt in an incident outside his pub, died in hospital.
Ashley Hanson, 35, of Batley, and a 17-year-old Batley boy, who cannot be named because of his age, have been charged with murdering 57-year-old Peter Gordon.
They were due to appear before Leeds Crown Court today.
The charges relate to an incident at about 1am on Monday, December 27, outside the Lord Nelson Inn on Cross Bank Road in Batley.
Mr Gordon suffered serious head injuries.
He was taken to Dewsbury District Hospital where he died on New Year's Day.
