They accuse a police officer of the murder of the former Real Atkinson

The former English player died three years ago after being attacked by an agent with a laser gun. The family criticizes the delays in the judicial process.


A police officer has been charged with the murder of former English soccer player Aston Villa and the Royal Dalian Atkinson Society, who died after being shot by a laser electric gun in 2016. A second police officer has been charged with assault and both will go to Birmingham court this Thursday afternoon to defend himself.

Atkinson died at the age of 48 after officers attacked him with a laser gun in the English town of Telford, in Shropshire County.

According to the West Mercia police department, the agents received an alert call in the early morning regarding an incident involving the "security of an individual" .

The Atkinson family, through a statement, has welcomed the decision, but has criticized that it has taken more than three years. In addition, it has requested that privacy be respected and that the process is not interfered with in order to avoid any interference or delay.

In his sports career, Atkinson militated in Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Royal Society, Aston Villa and Fenerbahce until his retirement in 2001.
