 – A man who has been charged with murder for allegedly stabbing his housemate to death on Christmas Eve is identified as the heir to a £230million pie company fortune.

Dylan Thomas allegedly attacked 23-year-old William Bush, who was found with fatal injuries in a car park next to Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff at around 11.30 am on December 24.

Thomas, 23, is the grandson of Sir Gilbert Stanley Thomas, the Welsh tycoon behind a business empire that included Peter's Pies.

He is said to have been best friends with William and both attended the same private school, Cathedral School in Llandaff.

The pair later moved in together, sharing a nearby terraced house which was owned by Thomas' grandparents and Welsh rugby legend Sir Gareth Edwards, according to The Sun.

Thomas moved into the house two years ago with his black labrador.

He is reported to be a computer programmer and health food fanatic.

William, who is said to have been a surveyor with a local commercial property firm, moved into the shared home soon after.

His family are reportedly from Brecon and he is said to have been a keen rugby player and golfer.

Following news of his death, William's family said in a statement: 'Our beloved Will was taken away from us in such a cruel and indescribable way. Will was such a loyal, funny, and caring son, brother, and boyfriend.'

'We are absolutely devastated and as a family request that our privacy is respected at this difficult time.'

Thomas is due to appear in court next month.

He had been set to appear at Cardiff Crown Court on January 2, but was remanded in custody and is not set to appear again until February 2.
