MAN CHARGED AS PART OF INVESTIGATIONS INTO FATAL FIGHT AT HAMILTON SOUTH

A 25-year-old man is in custody tonight, charged as part of investigations into a fatal fight at Hamilton South last week.

Timothy Onslow is facing kidnapping and affray charges, and fronted Newcastle Local Court today.

It comes after officers were called to a unit on Cody Street on Friday, where they found the body of a 51-year-old man, and a 23-year-old man unconscious, suffering head injuries.

No charges have been laid over the 51-year-old’s death.
