Man accused of murder of Ivybridge man appears in court

A man has appeared at Truro Crown Court via videolink after being charged with the murder of Ivybridge motorcyclist David Crawford.

Benjamin Parry, 42, appeared via videolink from Exeter Prison on Tuesday, following the fatal crash on the A38 near St Budeaux.

David Crawford, 59, from Ivybridge, Devon, died last Thursday, 12 May, and police initially said the incident involved a van and a motorbike. Parry was initially arrested on suspicion of failure to stop, driving under the influence of drink or drugs, and death by dangerous driving.

Parry, from Devonport, Plymouth, was remanded in custody after the hearing, which saw him enter no plea.

He is due to appear at Plymouth Crown Court on 14 June.
