Geoffrey Bran, 71, allegedly scalded his wife with the contents of their deep fat fryer at the Chipoteria, Carmarthenshire. She died in hospital six days later. A husband burned his wife of 30 years to death at their chip shop by pouring scalding hot cooking oil over her, a court has heard. Geoffrey Bran, 71, allegedly murdered his wife Mavis Bran, 69, with a deep fat fryer at the Chipoteria in Hermon, Carmarthenshire, following arguments between the pair. On Monday Swansea Crown Court was told Mrs Bran suffered severe burns to her body after her husband allegedly pushed or threw one of three fryers on top of her. Prosecutor Paul Lewis QC said: "It is the prosecution case in a nutshell that the terrible burns Mrs Bran suffered were not the result of an accident, but were caused by her husband deliberately pushing or throwing over her a deep fat fryer which contained scalding oil. The couple, who had no children together, owned a small number of commercial proprieties and businesses around South Wales, and opened the Chipoteria together in January in a cabin situated next to their home in the small West Wales village. The court heard that financial pressures of their various businesses would sometimes put strain on their marriage leading to arguments about money.
