Boy, 15, charged with man's murder

A 15-year-old boy was charged with the murder of a man stabbed to death as he walked home from work, police said.

Yajay Sudra was stabbed in an attempted mugging as he walked home from Birmingham International Airport where he worked in a book store.

Mr Sudra, 21, managed to stagger from the scene of the stabbing on Marsh Lane in Erdington to his home, where he was found by his mother on the doorstep of their home.

He died in her arms from a single stab wound to the heart following the attack on July 9.

A 15-year-old boy, from Erdington, Birmingham, was arrested on suspicion of murder at about 11pm on Friday night in Sutton Coldfield.

He was charged with the murder last night and remanded in custody to appear before magistrates tomorrow, police said.
