Kingstanding stabbing: Murder charge after Dale Grice killed
A man has been charged with murder after a father-of-two was stabbed to death in the street.
Dale Grice, 32, died at the scene of the attack, which happened outside a property on Cooksey Lane in Kingstanding, Birmingham, at about 07:00 BST on Saturday.
Ravinder Heer, 37, of Pimpernell Drive in Walsall, appeared before magistrates in Birmingham.
The construction worker was remanded in custody after a brief hearing.
He is due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on Wednesday.
Mr Grice was father to two daughters, aged six and eight, and was "loved by everybody", his family said in a statement.
"He had an infectious smile that would light up a room and now he lights up the sky."
Det Insp Caroline Corfield, from West Midlands Police, said the investigation was continuing and appealed for any information - particularly regarding two men and a woman seen leaving the scene in a taxi.
