The brother of a man who died after being hit by a car in Kent has become his fourth relative to appear in court charged with murder.

Father-of-five Jack Treeby, 43, of Rainham, Kent, suffered multiple injuries in Maidstone on Sunday.

Bill Treeby, 49, of Queen Street, Paddock Wood, was remanded in custody at Maidstone Magistrates' Court.

His sons, Billy Treeby, 29, and George Treeby, 22, and their mother have already been charged with murder.

Billy Treeby and George Treeby were remanded in custody at a court hearing on Friday.

Their mother, Charity Treeby, 50, of Queen Street, was remanded in custody charged with murder on Thursday.

The brothers also each face a charge of attempting to murder Jack Treeby's brother, Gary Treeby, who suffered bullet wounds and remains in a stable condition in hospital.

All four are next due to appear at Maidstone Crown Court on 18 January.

Police were called to the scene in Quarry Road just before 1900 GMT on Sunday, following reports that two men had been seriously injured in a collision.

A man who suffered minor injuries after being hit by a vehicle was treated at the scene.
