A man has been charged with murder following a fatal stabbing in Coventry earlier this month.
Officers and paramedics were called to Albany Court in Brunswick Road at around 2.30am on Sunday, 10 February, following reports a man had been stabbed.
Patrick Hill, 23, was found with knife wounds and taken to hospital - but died on 13 February. A post-mortem revealed he died of stab wounds.
Levi Whitmore-Wills, 18, was initially charged with wounding, but was last night charged with murder. He was appearing before Birmingham magistrates today (19 February).
West Midlands Police Det Insp Hannah Whitehouse, from the Homicide Unit, said: “This was initially treated as a serious stabbing but we’re clearly now looking at a murder enquiry after the victim succumbed to his injuries.
“We understand a disturbance took place at Albany Court - a multi-occupancy property - in Brunswick Road between 2am and 2.30am.
“I’d appeal for anyone who heard a disorder or saw anyone acting suspiciously to call us as they may have important information."
