Trial of Owen Dunn murder accused under way

By Barrie Hudson - 16 November 2023


The trial of two people accused of murdering Swindon man Owen Dunn is in progress.

On December 4, 2022, the 18-year-old was fatally stabbed in Mazurek Way, Haydon End.

Tyler Hunt, 18, of Park South and a 15-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons, have been charged with his murder, which they both deny.

The pair have pleaded guilty to being in possession of a knife, and admit to being at the scene, but say they were acting in self-defence.

The trial, taking place at Bristol Crown Court, is expected to last three weeks.
