Birmingham: British police will charge Zephaniah McLeod, 27, with one count of murder and seven counts of attempted murder following a spate of stabbings in Birmingham City on Sunday, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said on Tuesday.

“This decision was made following careful consideration of the evidence presented to us by West Midlands Police as a result of their ongoing investigation,” Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor of CPS West Midlands Suzanne Llewellyn said in a statement.

 

Police arrested a man on Monday on suspicion of murder after the series of stabbings that happened in four locations over a two-hour period in the early hours of Sunday morning in the central city of Birmingham.

Detectives have said the stabbings were linked but appeared to be random and were not thought to be gang-related or connected to terrorism.

A 23-year-old man died after being stabbed, and a man and a woman, aged 19 and 32, are in hospital in critical condition after also being attacked. Five others were less seriously injured.
