A 58-year-old man has denied murdering his 87-year-old mother.

John Griffiths, from Llanfrynach, near Brecon, Powys, is accused of killing Margaret Griffiths on 27 August 2022.

Mrs Griffiths was found by police officers at a property in Llanfrynach and was airlifted to hospital, but died the next day.

Mr Griffiths pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter at a plea hearing at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court.

He was remanded in custody and will stand trial in July.

Mrs Griffiths' family previously said she was a "much-loved mother, granny, sister and a loyal and active member of the community".
