We have charged four men with murder following the death of a man in Nelson.
Our officers were called by the North West Ambulance Service around 5.20am on Sunday, 5th November, to a report of a man – who we can now name as 53-year-old Andrej Minin – had sadly been found deceased inside a house.
His family are aware of the news and are being supported by specially trained officers.
A Home Office post-mortem examination found that Andrei died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head and neck.
As a result of our enquiries, we arrested three people on suspicion of murder on Sunday and a fourth man on Tuesday.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, we have today charged the following four men with murder.
They have been remanded into custody to appear at Burnley Magistrates Court today (9th November).
Anyone with information is asked to email [email protected] or call 101 quoting log 0259 of 5th November 2023.
