A MAN and a woman who have been arrested in connection with the death of a man in Grays, will appear in court later this month.

Dexter Riley, 20, and Nicola Mayger, 47, both of no fixed address, will appear following allegations of an assault against a man in Grays High Street at around 5.40pm on June 28.

The pair have been summoned to appear at Basildon Magistrates' Court on May 23.
