The women are accused of becoming involved with the inmate at the category B Parc Prison in Bridgend.

The man has not been named in court charges.

Shmylo's alleged five-month relationship is said to have taken place between December and April 2021.

Hibbs then allegedly got involved with the same man between May and July.
