Brothers charged with banker murder

Two brothers have been charged with the murder of a banker who died after confronting a gang in a city centre.

Tom and Ben Cowles, aged 21 and 20, of Costessey, Norfolk, are due to appear in court accused of killing 45-year-old Frank McGarahan.

The chief operating officer of Barclays Wealth was pronounced dead on Monday following an incident in Norwich in the early hours of Sunday.

A Norfolk Police spokeswoman said Ben Cowles had also been charged with three counts of assault - one against a Lithuanian man and other offences against Mr McGarahan's brother and cousin.
