Tests follow 'homophobic' killing

Post-mortem tests are to be carried out on a man who died after a homophobic attack in Merseyside, police said.

Michael Causer, 18, from Whiston, was attacked in Tarbock Road, Huyton, on 25 July. He suffered serious head injuries in the assault and died on Saturday.

Two Huyton men aged 19 and 18 have been charged with grievous bodily harm. A 19-year-old man from Huyton has been charged with witness intimidation.

More charges may be added depending on the post-mortem examination results.
