A second man has been charged with the murder of a missing Romanian woman.

Lidia Pascale, 26, had been staying in Smethwick, West Midlands, and Foleshill, Coventry. She was last seen on 19 November.

Thomas Ricketts, 37, from Alderton Drive, Wolverhampton, is due at Birmingham Magistrates' Court later.

Matthew Cherrington, 32, from High Street, West Bromwich, was remanded in custody after a court appearance earlier this week.

A property in West Bromwich has been sealed off for forensic examination.

West Midlands Police said it was working with Romanian authorities to keep Ms Pascale's family informed.
