He is due to appear before Birmingham magistrates today (Tuesday, February 19).
West Midlands Police detective inspector Hannah Whitehouse, from the Homicide Unit, said: “This was initially treated as a serious stabbing but we’re clearly now looking at a murder enquiry after the victim succumbed to his injuries.
“We understand a disturbance took place at Albany House – a multi-occupancy property – in Brunswick Road between 2am and 2.30am.
“I’d appeal for anyone who heard a disorder or saw anyone acting suspiciously to call us as they may have important information.”
