ACCUSED IN COURT. George Stills. the alleged Pontycymmer murderer, was removed from Pontycymmer to Bridgend on Wednesday by the early morning train in charge of Pol ice-Sergeant Lane. and at 11 o'clock he was brought up before Mr W. J. Lewis at the Bridgend Police Court. Prisoner is a. short, thick-set man, with dark- brown and rather curly hair, and dark-brown moustache. He has not an unpleasing appear- ance. When he entered the court he glanced nervously round, and then leaned his left elbow on the rail of the dock, buried his head in his hands. and remained in that position while evidence for a remand was given Police-sergeant Lane said :—" At 11.45 a.m. yesterday I was called to No. 7, Bridgend road, Pontycymmer. In tli- front. room I saw the body of Rachel Hannah Stills, prisoner's mother, lying on the floor. The head was ter- ribly bashed about and covered with blood. and very much swollen- Dr. John Bowen Jones, assistant to Dr. Parry, was present, and he said the woman had been dead about half an hour. I went into the kitchen, and there saw the prisoner, George Stills, who was then in custody. I told him I should take hun to the police station, and I did so. On the way to the police station, he remarked, I only gave her one blow." I then stopped him, and cau- tioned him, and said that whatever he said I should take down in writing and give in evidence against him. George Stills then further said, I did carry her out- side. I thought if I left her in that I would do her further injury." Inspector Benjamin Evans: Upon thai evi- dence, sir, I ask for a remand in custody until Saturday. Mr Walter Hughes, deputy magistrates' clerk, then asked the prisoner if he had any- thing to say why he should not be remanded. Stills raised his head from his hands and said in a clear voice, All I have to say, sir, is not guilty to the charge." Prisoner was then remanded in custody until Saturday,
