A fourth man has been charged with murder after the death of a 26-year-old.

Thomas Rogers was found "slumped" near the junction of Bristol Road and Mill Pool Way, in Bournbrook, Birmingham, on 22 August. He later died in hospital.

Macauley Welby, 22, of no fixed address, was arrested in Mansfield on Wednesday, West Midlands Police said.

He was brought to the West Midlands for questioning and appeared before Birmingham Magistrates' Court earlier.

Two of the victim's brothers David Rogers, 32, and Samuel Rogers, 30, have previously appeared in court, charged with murder, along with a third man, Ryan Hurt, 22, who faces the same charge.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Rogers died from a chest wound.

Mr Welby will appear before Birmingham's crown court on Friday.
