Boy, 14, charged with murder of five-year-old Logan Mwangi

A 14-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of five-year-old Logan Mwangi, whose body was discovered in a river in South Wales.

The boy, who has not been named by police because of his age – is due to appear at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court later, South Wales Police said.

Logan – also known as Logan Williamson – was found dead in Ogmore River near Pandy Park in Bridgend after police were called to a report of a missing child at 5.45am on Saturday July 31.

Angharad Williamson, 30, of Sarn, has also been charged with perverting the course of justice.

They are due to go on trial next year.
