Daniel Weyman, 32, leaves behind his six-year-old daughter Ruby SUS-190930-092954001

Daniel Weyman, 32, of Belmont Street, suffered serious injuries after an incident in the same road just before 1.50am on September 22, 2019.

He was taken by air ambulance to hospital in Southampton where he tragically died that afternoon.

Police say Christopher Sheehan, 40, a removals worker, of Pound Road, Walberton, has been charged with the murder of Daniel Weyman.

Curtis Sheehan, 18, of Barnham Lane, Walberton, has been charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to the death of Daniel.

They are both remanded in custody and are due to appear by videolink at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Friday (August 21).

The charges, authorised by the Crown Prosecution Service, follow an investigation by detectives from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team.

Detective Chief Inspector Gordon Denslow said: “This has been a complex investigation and Daniel’s family have been kept informed of developments throughout.”

No further action will be taken against a 35-year-old woman who was also arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with this matter, police said.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation can contact Sussex Police online or by calling 101, quoting Operation Fairford.
