Mr Corrigan (74) died from his injuries at the Royal Stoke University Hospital just over three weeks later on 11th May.

Whall spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth when he appeared before for a brief hearing at Llandudno magistrates court on Friday morning (28th June), flanked by two security guards.

He didn’t enter a plea and no application was made for bail – but it’s understood his lawyer indicated he denied responsibility.

Whall was remanded in custody and will appear before a judge at Mold Crown Court on Monday morning (1st July).

Five people have been released on bail but remain under investigation.

A 48 year-old man from Caergeiliog and a 36 year-old man from Bryngwran were questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, fraud and other offences.

A 50 year-old woman, also arrested on Tuesday, was held on suspicion of money laundering and fraud related offences. They have been granted ‘stringent’ conditional bail.

Two men from north Gwynedd were questioned in connection with an arson attack on a stolen 4×4 vehicle, which was taken from a house in Engedi on 3rd June and later found burnt out near a quarry at Llanllechid.

On Thursday, it emerged the incident was being linked to Mr Corrigan’s murder.

Detectives are still appealing for anyone with information to come forward as part of the biggest murder investigation on Anglesey since 2001.
