Smethwick death prompts murder probe
A murder inquiry has been launched after the death of a man in Smethwick in the West Midlands.
The 70-year-old was found at an address on White Road at about 14:45 GMT on Friday and later died in hospital.
His injuries were initially treated as "unexplained" but a post-mortem test on Saturday found he died as a result of "blunt force injury", police said.
A 50-year-old man arrested at the property on Friday is being held on suspicion of murder.
West Midlands Police said officers were granted extra time on Sunday to continue questioning him.
