TWO more people have been charged with murder after the fatal stabbing of Mark Nesmith at a Coventry petrol station.

Uzair Hussain and Sebastian Vastaki-Barsby were arrested during simultaneous raids at their home addresses on Wednesday morning, June 14.

Unemployed Hussain, aged 24 from Crampers Field, Radford, and 18-year-old Vastaki-Barsby from Barkers Butts Lane in Coundon were both charged last night with murder.

They are set to appear at Coventry Magistrates Court this morning.

Three people have now been charged in connection with the 35-year-old’s death.

Yesterday, Tyler Smith from Attoxhall Road, Coventry, also appeared before magistrates in the city charged with murder.

He was remanded in custody and is set to appear at crown court in Leamington Justice Centre today.

Mr Nesmith was found with stab wounds on the car park of the BP service station in The Butts, Coventry, in the early hours of Sunday.

He was taken to hospital, but died from his injuries the following day.
