"An HMRC taxman who allegedly worked as a drug dealer on the side was shot in a lay-by ‘in a dispute over cash’.
Mark Jones, a government valuation officer, died in hospital two months after the alleged attack despite having 15 operations on his gunshot wounds.
Two brothers, Stephen Bennett, 53, and Edward Bennett, 47, are accused of murdering him at the lay-by on the A4059 in Mountain Ash, South Wales on July 26 last year.
Currently on trial at Cardiff Crown Court, they allegedly targeted 43-year-old Jones in a row over money.
Prosecutor Chris Clee QC said: ‘Edward Bennett was a friend of Mark Jones and had been for some time. He was also involved in drug dealing with Mark Jones.’
Both brothers have pleaded not guilty to murder.
PC John Brimble, who was called to the incident, said he found Jones lying on the floor groaning in pain, ‘ash’ in colour.
Another officer at the scene, PC Maddox, said: ‘I asked Mr Jones if he had been shot. He was in a considerable amount of pain and was groaning.
‘I asked Mr Jones ‘do you know who did this?’.
‘I said ‘are you going to tell me?’ But he said ‘no’.’
Paramedic Simon Tunnicliffe there was a lot of blood and Jones was pale and ‘sweating profusely’.
He treated a wound near Jones’ abdomen and said he also suffered a shattered humerus and a severely injured elbow joint.
CCTV footage was also shown to the court, which showed the movements of a white van, with the word Ashdown written on it, driven by Stephen Bennett, on July 26, 2015.
The trial continues."
Quite a double life was being led there!
Tax does have to be taxing.
