Michael Hillier has been charged with the murder of Liam Smith, who was shot and subjected to an acid attack before his body was found in Wigan in November.
Why it matters
The murder of Liam Smith was the first fatal shooting in Greater Manchester in more than two years. The killing was described as a swift and well-planned out attack on a man who was not previously known to police. The use of acid in the attack is also significant as it has become an increasingly common method of attack in the UK.
