A 22-year-old man will appear in court today charged with the murder of a wedding guest.

Ricky Shaw is charged with stabbing 34-year-old Thomas Berry near a wedding reception in Bilston, West Midlands, on Saturday July 10.

Mr Berry, a father of two, was stabbed in the chest during a brawl.

Shaw, from Bilston, was arrested in Willenhall, West Midlands, on Friday evening and questioned by detectives before he was charged.

He was then remanded in to custody and will appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates' Court today.

Three other people suffered stab injuries during the violence, which led to the arrest of three men who were since granted police bail.
