A TEENAGER has been charged with murder in connection with a stabbing in Coventry earlier this month.

Police and paramedics were called to Albany House in Brunswick Road at around 2.30am on Sunday, February 10 following reports a man had been stabbed.

Patrick Hill, 22, was found with knife wounds and taken to hospital – but died on February 13.

Levi Whitmore-Wills, 18, was initially charged with wounding, but was charged with murder last night (Monday, February 18).

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.”

Anyone with information should contact West Midlands Police via Live Chat at WMP Online between 8am and midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Quote log number 303 10/2.
