Two men charged on suspicion of murder

Two men have been charged with murder following the death of a Wigan man left in a coma by an attack last year.

Daniel Eckersall, 32, and Geoffrey Cunliffe, 47, both of Withington Lane, Aspull, are due to appear before Wigan magistrates on Monday April 25.

The pair were already in custody, having previously appeared before a Liverpool Crown Court judge accused of causing Eric Caddick grievous bodily harm with intent - a charge they had both denied.

The 61-year-old was found seriously injured following an incident in Withington Lane on Wednesday November 25 last year.

Mr Caddick, police revealed today, died on Sunday March 13.
