    Two men charged with murder as bodies found in house after ‘smell filled road’

    Two men have been charged with murder after the discovery of two bodies in a home.

    Ionut-Valentin Boboc, 21, and Jacob Bebe Chers, 45, both from the Fishponds area of Bristol, were remanded in custody to appear at Bristol Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

    Police attended an address in Wood Street in Easton, Bristol, on Sunday following information from a member of the public.

    The bodies of two men were found inside the property.

    One neighbour said the road smelt so bad he poured disinfectant in the drain by his front window to get rid of the odour, BristolLive reports.

    The deaths of the two men are being treated as suspicious and forensic post-mortem examinations are being carried out.
