A man has been charged with the murder of a 40-year-old widower who was found stabbed to death at his Brighton flat.

Jeffrey Burrows, who grew up in Dungannon, County Tyrone, was fatally stabbed at his flat in Norfolk Square, where he lived alone, on 29 April.

Joel Elliott, 22, of North Road, Brighton, was charged by Sussex Police on Thursday and will appear before magistrates in the city later.

A second man arrested on suspicion of murder is on police bail until 29 May.

Mr Burrows' father David Burrows said his son's death had left his friends and family "numb" with grief.

"During his 17 years in Brighton, Jeff made many dear friends. We are all numb in our grief and empty in our souls to know Jeff is no longer with us," he said.
