Three men and a woman have been charged with the murder of a man found burned in an industrial bin in Southampton.

The body of Jamie Dack, 22, was found on Sunday after fire crews were called to the Empress Road Industrial Estate.

Ryan Ian Woodmansey, 31, Andrew William Christopher Dwyer-Skeats, 25, Lee Matthew Nicholls, 28, and Donna Louise Chalk, 20, face murder charges.

They remain in custody and are due to appear at Southampton Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

All four also face charges of false imprisonment and conspiracy to rob Mr Dack.

Mr Woodmansey, of no fixed abode, Mr Dwyer-Skeats, of Earls Road, Southampton, and Mr Nicholls, of Southampton Street, Southampton, were also charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Jamie Dack.

Ms Chalk's address was given as Earls Road, Southampton.

The body of Mr Dack, from Millbrook Road West, was found by fire crews who were called to Dukes Road on the industrial estate at about 03:10 BST on Sunday.

Hampshire Police said they were still asking for witnesses to contact them.

Mr Dack had been living at Patrick House, a hostel for homeless young people in Millbrook, Southampton in the weeks before his death.

He had worked at the Modelzone shop in the city centre over the Christmas period. Former colleagues described him as "a hard worker and very mild mannered."
