The mother and stepfather of a five-year-old boy who was pulled dead from a Welsh river have appeared in court over his murder.

Logan Mwangi, also known as Logan Williamson, was found on Saturday with multiple injuries including a torn liver, an internal head injury and a broken collarbone.

His mum Angharad Williamson, 30, and stepdad John Cole, 39, today separately appeared before magistrates in Cardiff.

Cole, from Bridgend, is charged with the murder of Logan and perverting the course of justice. He stared at the floor throughout the hearing while wearing a grey prison tracksuit.

Williamson, also from Bridgend, hung her head and did not look up as she appeared in the dock charged with perverting the course of justice over her son’s death.

A 13-year-old boy, who cannot be named due to his age, also appeared in court charged with perverting the course of justice before he was remanded to local authority care.

All three will appear at Newport Crown Court on Friday.

Logan lived in a flat with his family in Sarn just 400 yards away from the river where he was found dead.

Cole and Williamson got engaged less than three months ago and Logan was ‘beyond excited’ to become a pageboy for the ceremony planned for next year, said neighbours.
