The 28-year-old arrested on Friday after attending a police station in Birmingham, has been released on bail with conditions as our enquiries continue. 

An 18-year-old man arrested on Friday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder has also been bailed pending investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Mobberley, from our homicide team, said: "This is a fast-moving and complex investigation and these developments are significant.

"But we are still working to establish the full circumstances around this fatal stabbing and we’re appealing again for witnesses or anyone with information about the killing to get in touch. 

"They can talk to us in confidence or contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously." 

People can message us on live chat through the website or by calling 101, quoting log 316 of 22 April.
