A family has paid tribute to their "beautiful" son as a man is charged with his murder.
Daniel Kennell, 27, was found stabbed on Sunday on St Austell Road in Walsgrave, Coventry. He later died in hospital.
His family described him as the "centre of our universe".
Ryan Preston, 27, of Hermitage Road, Coventry, appeared at Coventry Magistrates' Court earlier charged with murder and was remanded in custody.
A 53-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released pending further investigation.
Paying tribute to Mr Kennell, his family described him as: "Our precious, loving and beautiful son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew.
"Taken away so cruelly and way too soon.
"[He was] loved by everyone and we are blessed to have him in our lives. We are devastated and unbearably lost."
Mr Preston is next due to appear at Warwick Crown Court on Thursday.
