A SUSPECT has been charged with the murder of a man who was described by his family as being “lovely inside and out”.

Lee Crewe, 36, from Newport was found unresponsive with serious injuries on Chepstow Road on Tuesday, May 14.

Paramedics later confirmed he had died.

A 21-year-old man from Newport arrested on suspicion of murder was charged last night.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear before the city’s magistrates’ court tomorrow morning.

Mr Crewe’s family said in a tribute: "Lee was lovely inside and out. He had an infectious personality that always lit up a room.

"We’ll always have an unbreakable bond and he’ll always be in our thoughts.

"Until we meet again our darling son."

Gwent Police said it was not looking for anyone else in connection with his death.

The force said his family are being supported by officers and appealed for witnesses.
