Second Wisbech man in court charged with Lincoln ‘boiling water’ murder

TWO WISBECH men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a 70-year-old Romany traveller who died after having boiling water poured on him.

Rocky Curtis, 24, of Newbridge Lane, was charged with the murder of Sonny Grey at his home in Westwick Gardens, Lincoln; he appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday and was remanded in custody.

Robert Michael Holmes, 23, of Redmoor Lane, is also charged with murder and has also been remanded in custody.

Mr Grey was killed at his home in Westwick Gardens, Lincoln, on October 29 last year.

He was assaulted and scalded with water from a kettle, which is thought to have contributed to his death. He died from his injuries two days after the attack.
