Hollywood star Deborah Kerr is devastated after learning her younger brother EDMUND TRIMMER was killed in an apparent road-rage attack.

The Scottish FROM HERE TO ETERNITY actress' 78-year-old sibling Trimmer died after being punched in the face during an argument with a motorist on a road in West Heath, Birmingham, England on Monday (23AUG04).

Retired journalist Trimmer was rushed to Selly Oak Hospital with a serious head injury, but died several hours later after doctors tried in vain to save him.

On Tuesday (24AUG04) a 55-year-old man from nearby Redditch was charged with murder and is due to appear in court today (25AUG04).

The OSCAR-nominated star, 82, lives in Klosters, Switzerland with her husband Peter Viertel.
