A MAN has admitted offences in connection with the alleged murder of Gurinderjit Rai last summer.

Morgan Tarrant, 21, pleaded guilty at Winchester Crown Court to assisting an offender and possessing a shortened shotgun without a firearm certificate.

Mr Rai, 30 from Eastleigh, was found dead in a car in a remote layby on Shepherds Farm Lane, Corhampton, in the Meon Valley, on July 13 last year.

The father-of-two had suffered gunshot wounds. Aston Hannis, Charlie Statham, Paul White and Corin Barlow are charged with murder.

Tarrant's current address cannot be revealed for legal reasons.

His case was adjourned for sentencing on a date to be fixed.
