A YOUNG dad-to-be has been murdered in an attack outside a village pub – just weeks before his baby was due.

Keyron Curtis, 21, was excited about becoming a father before he was fatally stabbed in Penywaun, South Wales.

"He will be sorely missed by all of his family and friends.”

Paying tribute to Mr Curtis in a statement, his family said: “Keyron was a friendly, easy-going family boy with a heart of gold. He was loved by us all, and always put other people before himself."

A police statement said: "A 24 year old man from Penywaun, Aberdare has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in police custody.

"Officers investigating the incident which is now being treated as murder, are keen to hear from anyone who may have taken footage or photographs of the incident on a mobile phone, or to anybody who may have dashcam footage from around that time."
