Mother and boy, 14, charged with murder of five-year-old Logan Mwangi found in Bridgend river

Written by on 21 October 2021

The mother of a five-year-old boy has been charged with the child’s murder, as a teenager appeared in court accused of the same offence.

Angharad Williamson, 30, was previously charged with perverting the course of justice in connection with the death of Logan Mwangi.

Williamson, from Sarn, Bridgend, is due before Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

A 14-year-old boy, who has not been named by police because of his age, appeared at the same court on Thursday also charged with Logan’s murder.

He spoke only to confirm his name, age and address. He had previously appeared at Newport Crown Court on 14 August, charged with perverting the course of justice.

A third person, 39-year-old John Cole, also from Sarn, has already been charged with Logan’s murder and perverting the course of justice.

Logan – also known as Logan Williamson – was found dead in Ogmore River near Pandy Park in Bridgend on 31 July.

A provisional trial date has been set for 31 January next year.

Logan is said to have suffered a torn liver, an internal injury to the back of his head, and a broken collarbone.

South Wales Police’s major crime investigation team is carrying out ongoing inquiries into the death.

Friends of the family paid tribute to Logan as a “kind, funny, polite, handsome and clever” boy following his death.

People – many of whom did not know Logan – left flowers, tributes, toys and teddies in front of the police cordon by the river.
