Man set to appear in court charged with Sutton Coldfield murder

A Birmingham man will appear at court this morning (Monday 14 August) in connection with the death of his elderly mother. 

Unemployed Darren Hammond, aged 41 from Ebrook Road, Sutton Coldfield will appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court charged with murder.

Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield, from force CID, said: “Although formal identification is yet to take place we are confident the deceased is Beryl Hammond who lived at the address in Ebrook Road where her body was discovered.

“I am seeking witnesses to Beryl’s last known movements and also those of her son, Darren Hammond, to help us understand more about the circumstances of her death. I would like to hear from anyone who had contact with or saw Beryl or Darren in recent months, even if you do not believe the contact to have been significant.

“The investigation continues and I again appeal for anyone who has any information they believe would assist the case to come forward."
