A man has appeared in court accused of murdering an 18-year-old who was killed in a drive-by shooting.

Kenichi Phillips was shot while sitting in a car in the Ladywood area of Birmingham on 17 March.

Dean Silvera, 37, from Perry Barr, appeared before magistrates in the city. He was remanded into custody to appear at crown court on 9 May.

He is the second person to be charged with the teenager's murder. A 17-year-old was arrested last month.
